Cardinal Club Posts Second Straight Record-Breaking Year
Sept. 6, 2006
BEAUMONT - The Cardinal Club posted a second straight record-breaking year, collecting over $150,000 in donations for Lamar University athletics during its 2005-06 membership drive.
The results were due, in large part, to the work of volunteers who helped in an earlier Phone-a-thon that raised over $50,000 in pledges and garnered more than 300 new members.
"The support of fans, businesses and community leaders has been phenomenal," said Cardinal Club president Frank Messina. "Membership is up nearly 100 percent over two years ago and donations are up nearly 50 percent during the same time period. The community is excited about the positive direction of the university and the athletics department and that is being reflected by the renewed strength of the Cardinal Club."
