The annual Senior Gift Campaign set new records this year in overall participation as well as involvement among juniors, helping to raise a total of $32,194 for Berkeley-Haas.

Led by co-chairs Tyler Wishnoff, BS 13, and Roschelle Lowe, BS 14, the campaign surpassed its goal of 50 percent participation. All in all, 196 students—or 53 percent—contributed to the campaign, bringing the total raised by students to $8,356. A New Alumni Challenge Match and $5,000 each from alumni Brad Howard, BS 79, and Dean Rich Lyons, BS 82, brought the total to $32,194.

Juniors showed more involvement in the campaign than ever: Six juniors served on the organization committee, including Lowe, and a record 21 juniors donated to the campaign.

To reward the class for reaching its participation goal, Haas hosted its first-ever Senior Gift Party, which was attended by Lyons and Howard, during study week.
