The Olde Boys Rugby Endowment, currently at $363,585, is one of the five largest alumni endowments set up for Palmer. The rugby alumni are diligent about growing their endowment each year through contributions from an annual rugby-sponsored seminar, plus individual contributions.

During Homecoming 2007 on the Davenport Campus, rugby alumni celebrated the naming of two rooms in the Palmer College of Chiropractic Academic Health Center (AHC) in Pisciottano Hall. To do this, they raised more than $50,000 in support of Palmer’s capital campaign. The highlight of the Homecoming celebration was presenting two national championship plaques to then-Chairman of the Board of Trustees Vickie Palmer. During the presentation, members of the Olde Boys Rugby Club as well as current Palmer Rugby Club members serenaded Ms. Palmer with the Palmer Alma Mater.

This year’s annual Sunshine Tour Seminar was held in Deerfield Beach, Fla., Feb. 22-24. All proceeds were again donated to the rugby endowment.
