LOS ANGELES - The 2007 LMU Athletics/LionsFund Summer Drive kicks off today, Wednesday, July 11. A key part of setting a foundation for Athletics success in the coming year, the Summer Drive is entering is sixth annual campaign in 2007.
Last year's effort set a new all-time record with over $109,000 raised in the five-week period from 349 donors, and this year's goal is to shatter that record and set another new all-time high.
In 2006-07, LMU Athletics again celebrated one of the most successful seasons in program history, with Lions teams winning over 60 percent of all contests and multiple conference champions and All-American selections.
A big part of setting the foundation for this success is the LionsFund Summer Drive, helping to raise support for the teams and give them an edge on the competition in the coming season. Volunteers reach out with personal contacts during the five-week Summer Drive period to thank alumni and donors for their support and secure their commitment again for the coming year.
Focused on supporting student-athlete scholarships and team needs, LionsFund is the central annual fundraising organization for LMU Athletics. Gifts to LionsFund help provide the resources necessary for LMU Athletics to achieve the highest level of success, both athletically and academically. Donors to LionsFund receive a number of special benefits throughout the year and are an important part of the Lions Athletics team. Each and every LMU Athletics fan can join to make a difference for our teams through LionsFund and make a difference for our teams in the upcoming season.
The 2007 LMU Athletics/LionsFund Summer Drive is scheduled to run from July 11 through August 15.
