Smith Day: The Great Exchange will be held on Oct 7, 2017 at 10am at the Walker Art Center. Be sure to wear your Rally Day hat to Smith Day and donate and bring with you one item which can be passed in a diploma-like circle. Talk up the sale with friends, as you can bring as many as you’d like. Please consider volunteering early – we have a ball getting the event ready.
Now entering its 84th year, Smith Day is the Minnesota Smith Club’s annual fund-raising event. Proceeds are deposited in our endowed scholarship fund, which provides scholarships for outstanding young Minnesota women. Funds are also used to support PRAXIS summer internships that allow students to gain practical experience in an area of special interest. Over the years our endowed scholarship fund has grown to an impressive $2 million+.
Smith Day is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other alums from the area and entertain friends. The club members who volunteer have a great time. For some, it’s the only time during the year that they see dear Smith friends. They have fun as well as make such valuable contributions to the event and to Smith.
If you have any questions, ideas, requests or if you’d like to volunteer, please submit our contact form.
