Interim President Christopher Fiorentino & Sue Fiorentino
With Co-Chairs Stephanie & Ed Collison ’93
 Host the 2016 WCU Presidential Scholarship Gala

On April 2nd, Hollinger Field House was transformed into an Egyptian oasis for the 33rd Annual Presidential Scholarship Community Gala, Pyramids of Progress. Since its inception in 1983, this premiere black-tie event has funded over 130 Presidential Scholarships for WCU’s most academically gifted students.  One of WCU’s largest and most prestigious scholarships, the Presidential Scholarship is a renewable, four-year award made possible entirely through private donations.  Over $1.2 million dollars has been raised for these scholarships through Gala over the years and the 33rd Gala saw the highest level of corporate sponsorship in the history of the event. 

Guests enjoyed fine Egyptian cuisine, belly dancers, live music by Midnight Hour and an extensive silent auction, bidding on everything from African safaris to original art to VIP Eagles tickets.  Interim President Chris Fiorentino and his wife Sue took over Gala hosting duties as we said good-bye to Greg and Sandra Weisenstein.  Thank you to all who contributed to this wonderful evening, helping an important cause, spent with special friends including community leaders, WCU alumni, faculty, and staff.  To be a part of next year’s event, contact the WCU Foundation at 610.436.2868 or email
