A Message from the Salamone Alumni Soccer Tournament Committee
Although registration fees cover the cost of the Salamone Alumni Soccer Tournament, it's important to remember that Oglethorpe needs additional financial support from its alumni. A healthy and vibrant university will help support a healthy and vibrant soccer program. Any donation can be designated as you wish, but the university's most critical need are contributions to the Oglethorpe Fund, which provides additional budget-relief to all departments at Oglethorpe.
There are several ways to give back to our alma mater in memory of our friend and teammate John P. Salamone '86:
- A gift to the 2007-2008 Oglethorpe Fund in memory of John P. Salamone '86.
- A gift to the John P. Salamone Scholarship. Your contribution will become a permanent part of the endowment.
- A gift designated to the soccer program to provide additional budget dollars to be used by the teams during the current season.
To make a contribution to the university in memory of John P. Salamone, please click here. Once you're at the giving page, please specify under your gift amount "Oglethorpe Fund," "John P. Salamone Scholarship," or "Designated Gift to Soccer Program."
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
