We would also like to thank all the many other donors for their contributions and those who purchased tickets to attend this signature fundraising event. Although the needs are enormous – and growing – even a modest donation has a significant impact on the lives of young men and women seeking an AUB degree, and for patients and their families struggling to pay for medical care. Thank you!​
