Purdue Crew Team Donates $16,844 to LUM
Row-A-Thon Benefits LUM Good Samaritan Program
The Purdue Crew Team raised $16,843.92 for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund through the 10th annual Purdue Row-a-Thon event which took place on February 16 at Tippecanoe Mall. This is the single largest gift to the LUM Good Samaritan Program again this year. The “big” check was presented to Linda Hicks, the director of the LUM Good Samaritan Program, by the Purdue Crew president, Brendan Doherty, last Sunday at their end of the year banquet (pictured above).
