Alumni--it's time to flex your Class Spirit muscle! 💪

Friendly competition engaged! It's Day 2 of Bucs Together Days of Giving, and it’s time to flex your Class Spirit muscle. 💪 

Will 2006 or 2004 reclaim their giving day titles or will the reunion year classes give them a run for their money – we are looking 👀 at you ‘4s and ‘9s! Seems like 2000 has a lot of energy this year too! 😉

We're throwing down the gauntlet – which class can muster the most donors in support of our incredible teachers, coaches, advisors, and staff members? With your gift and outreach to classmates, we can truly make an impact and surpass our target of 600 donors

Thank you for standing by us, and let's ensure Day 2 of our giving challenge is a resounding success!  

Help us reach our goal of 600 gifts by TOMORROW at 3 pm!
