LOS ANGELES - The 2008 LMU Athletics/LionsFund Summer Drive is well underway, entering its fourth week of the five-week campaign. A key part of setting a foundation for Athletics success in the coming year, the Summer Drive is in its seventh annual campaign in 2008.

The LionsFund Summer Drive is a large part of setting the foundation for the success of LMU Athletics for the coming year. Involving over 60 volunteers from all over the US, this effort helps to raise support for the teams and gives them an edge on the competition before the season even begins. Volunteers reach out with personal contacts during the five-week Summer Drive period to thank alumni and donors for their support and secure their commitment again for the coming year to help all Lions teams.

This year's Summer Drive began with a kickoff event in Gersten Pavilion on Wednesday evening, July 9, and has also already included a volunteer phonathon from Gersten and a regional volunteer meeting in Northern California. The 2007 Summer Drive set a new all-time record with over $170,000 raised in the five-week period from 522 donors, and this year the volunteers look to continue that momentum and reach out to even more new Lions fans.

Focused on supporting student-athlete scholarships and team needs, LionsFund is the central annual fundraising organization for LMU Athletics. Gifts to LionsFund help provide the resources necessary for LMU Athletics to achieve the highest level of success, both athletically and academically. Donors to LionsFund receive a number of special benefits throughout the year and are an important part of the Lions Athletics team.

The 2008 LMU Athletics/LionsFund Summer Drive is scheduled to run from July 9 through August 15. If you are interested in volunteering to help, or to make your gift or pledge today, download the 2008 Pledge Form at the link listed above or contact Rob Anderson '00 MBA '04 at (310) 338-2908 or randerso@lmu.edu.
