A picture-perfect evening for home team at Chancellor’s Scholarship Dinner
Packers President Mark Murphy got a standing ovation Friday night (Oct. 18) from an audience of 250 or more at the annual Chancellor’s Scholarship Dinner on stage at the Weidner Center. Murphy and Chancellor Tom Harden announced a major challenge gift from the Green Bay Packers Foundation to raise money for student scholarships at Green Bay’s hometown university. If other donors take advantage of the Packers dollar-for-dollar match to begin or grow their own scholarships, the final take will be an additional $500,000 for endowed scholarships. Lou LeCalsey, the UW-Green Bay Foundation president, served as emcee for the 13th annual dinner.
