2018 VCU Athletics Student-Athlete Donor Dinner


The Ram Athletic Fund hosted its annual Student-Athlete Donor Dinner, presented by Ernst & Young, on Thursday, October 4th at the Omni Hotel in Richmond.

Each year, the event connects student-athletes and Ram Athletic Fund donors as part of the donor/student-athlete pairing program, which began a few years ago as a way for donors to get to know VCU’s student-athletes on a more personal level. The two groups sat amongst each other, and RAF members had the opportunity to learn about the young men and women who represent VCU Athletics in competition and in the classroom.

The evening was highlighted by several guest speakers, including Vice President and Director of Athletics Ed McLaughlin, Ernst & Young's Jeff Marklin, current lacrosse student-athlete and president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Ryann Shaughnessy and women’s basketball alumna Jacinda Alston.
