10th Annual Winter Auction Honors Alumni


Thank you to all who supported the 10th Annual Iona College Winter Auction & Christmas Celebration at the New York Athletic Club on Friday, December 5.

What a wonderful evening and company we had, and how blessed we were to celebrate two remarkable Ionians - JoAnn Mazzella Murphy ’98H and Robert E. Novak, CFC, Ph.D. ’72.
The highlight of the evening was the delivery of a moving speech by Iona senior, Ariana D’Avanzo, who expressed, “Your support gives students the gift of learning, the chance to have an unforgettable college experience and the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
Ariana was joined at the event by other members of the student body who participated in a fund challenge which took place during the live auction. The students engaged in healthy competition against one another in hopes to raise the most funds for their respective teams. 
With the participation of alumni, parents and friends, this event continues to be defined by loyal supporters who believe in the Iona mission, who invest in a college that transforms lives, and who generously offer their time and talents.

On behalf of the entire Iona College community, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
