Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends,

Spring Banquet is Canceled

With the University announcing that students will not return to campus after spring break because of concern over COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our Spring Banquet weekend in April. While we are all disappointed, we feel especially bad for the seven graduating seniors on the men’s team. So before students leave campus, I am going to hold a smaller banquet next week to celebrate the seniors and captains. And then our thought is to roll the spring celebration of the team into the fall event. We’ll keep you informed as those plans develop.

Giving Day is Huge Success

We broke all the records last night! Thank you so much for your extremely generous support -- support which is so important for the team to see during this stressful time. We hit our goal of 194 donors and then blew past it to finish at 211. Reaching our goal unlocked my gift of $5000 and another $5550 from the Cornell Varsity Club. Phenomenal! We ended with a gift total of almost $29,000, more than double last year’s total if you can believe it!

This amazing year has surpassed all my expectations. I am so proud of the team and I am so grateful to all of you! I am truly sorry we cannot get together to celebrate this year’s successes at the Spring Banquet, but I look forward to the day in the not too distant future when we can.


Stay healthy and Go Big Red!


All the best,


Support Big Red Fencing
