Celebrating the Legacy

Dear Friends,

The Steve “Air II” McNair Memorial Foundation and Alcorn State University are excited to announce the Celebrating the Legacy Endowment Gala on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 7:00PM. It will be held at The BB Club in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The special guest host for the evening will be 1995 Heisman Trophy Winner and former Tennessee Titan Eddie George. As a tremendous stakeholder of this community, the University requests your support by serving as a sponsor for this event.

The Endowment Gala is the premiere fundraising event and is designed to support talented students who demonstrate a financial need. Of our 3,700 students, roughly 90% need financial aid. Your support of this event will grant students an education and a future filled with possibilities. The funds generated will benefit Alcorn State University students by providing need and merit-based scholarships. We pride ourselves on assisting deserving students in achieving their dreams of earning college degrees.

Aside from supporting a very worthy cause, you can also anticipate dancing the night away as guests will enjoy a full night of entertainment including VIP reception, dinner, live music, a spirited silent auction, and hear impactful stories from students, former teammates and friends. With reduced state allocations to education, gifts from individuals, alumni and corporations are crucial in supporting student success with the necessary funds to attain a high-quality education. Because of your support, students will have the resources to become the next generation leaders in our communities.
