SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Briar Cliff University raised $15,106 at its annual “Lunch with the Chargers” event on January 18 at M’s on 4th Restaurant in downtown Sioux City. All proceeds went directly to the student scholarship fund at Briar Cliff.

Over the course of three separate seating sessions, more than 190 people were served lunch by Briar Cliff student athletes, coaches and administrators.

“We’d like to thank our guests, student athletes, coaches and M’s on 4th Restaurant for their support of this year's event,” said Tina Stroud, Vice President for University Relations at Briar Cliff. “’Lunch with the Chargers’ is an opportunity to bring the Briar Cliff community together to celebrate the impact our benefactors have in helping our students achieve their dreams of a Briar Cliff education.”

This year’s “Lunch with the Chargers” was part of the three-day “Alumni Weekend” at Briar Cliff, which included the celebration of 50 years of women’s basketball at the University and the induction of Jim Kriege ‘73, Paulette Neuhalfen ‘92 and Kelley Stineman ’96 into the Charger Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, January 19.
