You don’t often see a line of people waiting as cheerfully as the folks queuing up in the doorway to Cook Alumni Hall for Craig’s Eggs.
Craig Eynon, NEOMED’s director of alumni relations and development operations, has made the breakfast buffet a tradition to thank supporters of NEOMED’s annual Blue Fund campaign, which runs from July 1 through June 30.
Fifty-three percent of NEOMED employees contributed a record total of $110,247 to NEOMED’s Blue Fund this year. More than 100 people responded “yes” to Eynon’s invitation to a free celebratory breakfast Wednesday, July 28. Two of them won prizes announced that morning: Harry Sivec, Ph.D., clinical associate professor of psychiatry, won a vacation day, and Todd Wallwork, technology systems librarian, won a preferred parking spot on campus for a year.
Flanked by Signet staff – including NEOMED’s executive chef, Xavier Smith – on the cook line, Eynon said, “I’m thrilled to be able to hold an in-person event this year. It’s a small way for us to show how appreciative we are of the support we receive from NEOMED employees to the Blue Fund campaign.”
