To the editor:
Cazenovia College's fundraising efforts include a Phonathon each semester. Student callers contact alumni and parents to deliver news or update personal information. In the course of these calls, students describe ways the Annual Fund benefits their education, and encourage those who are able to continue supporting the fund with their dollars.
To express gratitude for the tremendous energy and enthusiasm our students invest in their work, we reward their efforts with prizes from favorite local businesses. Along with our Phonathon students, I would like to offer thanks to the many area organizations that have donated gift certificates, coupons and merchandise to the student Phonathon callers who help to raise funds for the Annual Fund, making it possible for our very deserving students to receive a token of appreciation for their hard work.
