2018 HRSM Alumni Homecoming Party was Friday, October 26

Thank you so much for making the 2018 HRSM Alumni Homecoming Party one of the best parties we've ever had! We hope you had as much fun as we did, and we were thrilled to have a full house with nearly 300 attendees! Together we raised more than $13,400 from the auction to support the HRSM Alumni Society and student scholarships.

This event would not be possible without you, so thank you so much for coming! Special thanks, as well, to our sponsors, auction donors, the HRSM Alumni Society Board, our volunteers and the fantastic McCutchen House Team. Your support means more than words can express and has a lasting impact on the college.

And, congratulations to:

  • Alumna Pam Bennett (2001), winner of the drawing for two free tickets to the Carolina vs. Clemson game
  • Alumnus Luke Mashburn (2011), winner of the Homecoming Football tickets
  • Alumnus Bruce Perdue (1984), winner of the $100 Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Gift Cards
  • Alumna Rachel Cooper (2012), winner of one month of free tanning to LexingTAN
