Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Kappa Delta’s karaoke night will rock you

March 18, 2013 at 5:13 pm

It’s a tradition shared by Kappa Deltas around the country, and here in Beloit, members of the local chapter of the sorority are working hard to make their ShamROCK event a Beloit mainstay as well.

“All Kappa Deltas across the U.S. do it—we’re trying to make this a Beloit tradition,” says KD member Anne Bardo.

Each year, KD hosts ShamROCK in order to raise money for charitable causes—this year, the recipients of proceeds from the event will be Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin and Prevent Child Abuse America. The event will take place Friday (March 22) at 8 p.m. in Wilson Theatre.

For a $2 admission, Beloiters will be treated to a karaoke competition (Roc Ordman and Michael Krantz-Perlman are among the recognizable names that have already committed to sing, organizers told the Terrarium) hosted by John Kaufmann and a silent auction of food, crafts, and coupons for home-cooked meals.

There’s still a limited time to sign up to sing; if you’re interested, email Lora Rowan at rowanl@beloit.edu as soon as possible. Check back later this week for a video preview of the event.
