SECC reaches 60% of goal, announces drawing winners

The second-annual SECC breakfast was a huge success, pulling in nearly $2,000 in proceeds. With more than 500 donors, UNCG faculty and staff have raised more than $120,000 dollars this fall, bringing the SECC to 60 percent of its 2018 goal.

And the pancakes, prepared by “celebrity chefs,” were a hit.

“Our leaders were very enthusiastic and entertaining, and our volunteers kept the energy up and everything running like a fine-tuned machine.  From the continual planning that was completed behind the scenes to the actual event itself, I couldn’t have asked for better people to work with or a better event,” said Event Chair Tammy Downs. “Coming together to meet the needs of those going through difficult times and seeing so many people that care enjoying breakfast and fellowship together with kindred spirits is what this campaign is all about.”

See below for a list of winners from the drawings at the SECC breakfast:

  • Sheryl Williamson – UNCG Corn Hole Game
  • Diane Levine – UNCG Mugs & T-Shirt
  • Cathy Church – Holiday Books & Decor
