Approximately 350 people attended the second annual event, which took place Oct. 23 at the Journal Printing Building in downtown Kirksville, courtesy of the Wooden Nickel. Event organizers announced the philanthropic effort raised $7,000, and proceeds were divided equally between Truman’s Investing in Students fund and the National Fibromyalgia Association.

The University created the Investing in Students fund earlier this year in response to the growing financial burden placed on students and their families.

The fund was established with a $30,000 gift from President Darrell W. Krueger and his wife Nancy.

University constituents, including faculty, staff, alumni, friends and corporations, have also provided support for the initiative. Gift commitments to the fund now total more than $200,000.
