2005 Winter Institute Washington, DC Fundraiser
June 20 , 2005
An event in the nation’s capital raised more than $50,000. Combined with other support over the last six months, the Institute was able to meet the second year match of the challenge grant from the Robert M. Hearin Foundation.
We are indebted to the more than 50 co-hosts of the event, who honored Gov. William Winter with their financial support. They included congressional and civil rights leaders, as well as friends and family of the governor.
This Washington, D.C., event at the Army and Navy Club attracted more than 160 guests. The gala was the first resource development activity held for the Winter Institute outside the state of Mississippi.
“The institute has been supported by an effective external resouce advisory board, which has organized several events around the state,” said Susan Glisson, director. “The D.C. event signals the institute’s growing national reputation and support.”
