The annual Donor & Scholar Reception was held on November 5th. This event celebrates the exceptional group of BC Foundation scholarship recipients, as well as the donors who make these scholarships possible. We heard the stories of two incredibly ambitious scholarship recipients, who shared how the Foundation is helping them achieve their educational goals. Thank you to all the donors, scholarship recipients, BC leadership and special guests who joined us this year.
The Foundation hosted a BC Quarterly event on Saturday, September 13 in conjunction with the women’s and men’s Bulldog soccer games. Guests enjoyed chili and beer, entered drawings to win a jersey signed by the men’s soccer team and Seattle Reign gear, and even sported temporary Bulldog tattoos! BC Quarterlies are appreciation events designed to highlight various activities, programs, and offerings on campus.
