Although we were unable to hold the 20th anniversary of the Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance this past March, we were still able to hold our annual silent auction. Through the generosity of our Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota community and many businesses who donated, the Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance Committee was still able to raise $21,026 for our two beneficiaries, Sue Shroetke and Gianna Samountry. Both will receive $10,513 to assist with their specific situations.
Due to the cancellation of this year’s dance, the university has announced it will continue the 20th anniversary celebration in the next academic year on March 20, 2021. We will continue to raise funds for this year’s beneficiaries and will recognize all of our previous beneficiaries in this meaningful and long-standing Saint Mary’s tradition.
Thank you to the members of Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance Committee and its executive board for all your work and for all of those who support the annual tradition, which helps those in need who are connected to our Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota family.
