Are you returning to campus for Duke Reunions Weekend?

The Office of Gift Planning is honored to sponsor three signature events during Duke Reunions Weekend. Join us this year for two evening celebrations and an informal planned giving seminar.

FRIDAY, APRIL 12TH

Half-Century Club Reunion Celebration | 5:30 PM – 10:00 PM | Hilton Durham near Duke University

This special evening for one of Duke’s most revered groups—the Half-Century Club--kicks off with a reception sponsored by the Duke Heritage Society and Office of Gift Planning from 5:30 – 6:30 PM, featuring a full open bar and light hors d’oeuvres. After catching up with friends over cocktails, adjourn to the Ballroom at 6:30 PM for a delicious dinner, followed by more revelry while a DJ plays music from your Duke days!

Class of 1969 – 50th Reunion Celebration | 6:30 PM – 11:00 PM | Washington Duke Inn

This special celebration begins with a reception sponsored by the Duke Heritage Society and Office of Gift Planning from 6:30 – 7:30 PM. After catching up with friends over cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres, adjourn to the President’s Ballroom at 7:30 PM for a delicious dinner. The evening continues with a dessert buffet, giving classmates additional opportunity to mix, mingle, and dance the night away while a DJ provides music from your Duke days. Wine will be served with dinner, and a cash bar will open after entrees are cleared and the dessert buffet opens.

SATURDAY, APRIL 13TH

Three Ways to Make the Most of Your Finances through Philanthropy in 2019 and Beyond | 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM | Room 241, Brodhead Center

The charitable planning experts at Duke will share three ways to fulfill personal goals, such as providing for yourself and your loved ones or planning for retirement, while making a positive impact at a charity (like Duke!). Please join us prior to President Price’s State of the University address for a light breakfast and informal discussion.
