BankFive was once again a proud supporter of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research’s 13th Annual Celebrity/Scholarship Dinner.
The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research held its dinner event on April 10th at the Venus de Milo in Swansea, MA and featured former New England Patriot cornerback Ty Law. The evening began with a welcome from Dr. Divina Grossman, Chancellor of The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Dr. Nora Ganim Barnes, Director for the Center of Marketing Research. Opportunities were then presented to assist the center through a silent auction and raffle to win an array of items including Patriots memorabilia and a sailboat ride offered by BankFive’s former president Thomas F. Lyons and his wife.
Following dinner, scholarships were presented by local organizations including BankFive to about 20 UMass Dartmouth graduate and undergraduate marketing students.
Lastly, Ty Law gave a presentation on his experience in the NFL and what it was like being a three time Super Bowl champion. He expressed that hard work and dedication towards a college education is what is needed in order to fulfill any dream, even his dream of being a football player. He commended the students for their hard work and dedication and recognizing an opportunity when it presents itself.
