Veterans Recognition Dinner
Col. Denise (Fitzgerald) Lind ’82, judge in the WikiLeaks case, served as keynote speaker at the third annual Veterans Recognition Dinner. Two Siena students received Veteran and Cadet Fund awards and the Mohawk Battalion ROTC Hall of Fame inducted its first three members: Hon. Christopher P. Gibson ’86, Major General Harold J. Greene and Chaplain (Major General) Donald L. Rutherford.
A sold-out crowd of 800 guests attended Siena’s 14th annual Festa Vino in October at the Marcelle Athletic Complex. The fundraiser, which will benefit Siena’s Saints Alive! Athletic Fund and the McCormick Center for the Study of the American Revolution, brought in $75,000. The gym was transformed into a Tuscan countryside featuring food samplings from 21 restaurants and, through a partnership with Craig Allen ‘91, owner of All Star Wine & Spirits, more than 100 different wines from around the world.
Lacrosse Alumni Golf Tournament
Siena men’s lacrosse alumni converged on Normanside Country Club to compete in the first Men’s Lacrosse Alumni Golf Tournament in September. More than 50 alumni, parents, coaches and current players hit the links, raising money to support an endowment for men’s lacrosse.
