While the recent issue of RWU Magazine is still fresh on your desk – or coffee table – the publications team is hard at work planning the Fall 2013 issue. Our goal? To bring you the most compelling content possible. And what’s more compelling than you, our readers?
If you’ve ever wanted to see your name in print, a story in RWU Magazine is a great opportunity to share your work – personal or professional – your ideas and your passions.
No idea is too small. Think you (or someone you know) should be the subject of a Face to Face profile? Tell us why! Publish a fascinating research study recently? We’d love to hear about it. Can you play the xylophone with your toes? Quirky content works, too.
If you would want to read about it, we want to hear about it.
There are two simple ways to share your story idea with the RWU Magazine team:
BRISTOL, R.I. – In one of the most successful fundraising events in university history, Roger Williams University raised $1.7 million during its 10th Annual Captain’s Cup Regatta this Saturday and unveiled plans for a new waterfront Sailing Center to be built on its Bristol campus.
The highlight of the evening came when Richard L. Bready ’08H, chairman of the University’s Board of Trustees, donated $1 million toward the project during a live fundraising auction conducted by Joseph M. Brito, Jr., a fellow Trustee. In a tent at the Herreshoff Marine Museum filled with 200 RWU sailing alumni, members of the current team, parents and community supporters, pandemonium erupted. Bready’s gift was quickly followed by a $500,000 pledge from a sailing family from Florida, then a $100,000 gift from an anonymous donor who arranged to have the pledged phoned into the auction. The series of seven- and six-figure gifts were followed by a large number of spontaneous smaller gifts. By the end of the evening, $1.7 million had been raised.
