It’s hard to believe it’s over. We just started!
This is the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2015. We’ll have speakers, a little ceremony, some awards and mostly just good company as we bid each well in this final day of the Class of 2015.
IDF 2015 Graduates, you are welcome to bring guests, siblings, spouses, significant others, parents. There is no cost to you. This is, however, a fundraiser for our next great Class of 2016, so we ask extra guests to help underwrite the cost of graduation with a $20 donation for food/drink and a little left over for our scholarship fund.
For Alum and other distinguished guests, we’d like to ask for a $20 donation to help defer the costs of graduation. Every dollar raised will increase our net for the event and the balance will go directly into the Scholarship Fund for the Class of 2016.
