Flagler alumni weekend begins May 4

SAINT AUGUSTINE – Approximately 400 Saints will return to their alma mater May 4 to 7 to reconnect with their Flagler family during the college’s annual Alumni Weekend. Alumni will reunite with old friends at Markland’s festive party, enjoy a family campus picnic and pool party and surf the waves of St. Augustine Beach during the Hugh Shaw Memorial Surf Contest. Outstanding alumni will also be recognized during the Alumni Awards Luncheon on Friday, May 5.
The four-day long event will be promoting its third annual “Giving Day,” a campaign to raise funds for “Flagler Fund – Academic Programming,” which directly benefits students and helps to create an exceptional experience for them in the classroom. The Flagler College Board of Trustees challenges alumni, donors and friends to honor retiring President William T. Abare, Jr., by matching their lead gift of $25,000. All gifts made during Alumni Weekend count toward Giving Day, held on Tuesday, May 9.
