CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Over 140 student-athletes from 14 varsity teams gathered on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 5-7 p.m. in the Conte Forum Media Suite to make phone calls to Flynn Fund donors, thanking them for their generous donations to Boston College Athletics. The number of participants marks a record high in the history of the event.

The Flynn Fund partnered with the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) to have student-athletes contact donors to express appreciation for their continued support of Boston College Athletics. Student-athletes also wrote personalized notes to Flynn Fund donors thanking them for their gifts. BC student-athletes contacted more than 1,350 Flynn Fund donors throughout the course of the evening.

The Flynn Fund supports scholarships and operating costs for Boston College's 31 varsity sports and approximately 750 student-athletes. Last year, alumni, parents and friends contributed more than $20 million to BC Athletics.
