Saint Mary's University says proceeds from the 13th annual Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance on Saturday, March 23rd, will go to senior Sabrina Bushlack who is recovering from a serious traffic crash.
Bushlack, a senior biochemistry major, who was seriously injured last summer by a drunk driver in Fort Wayne, Ind. was left in a medically induced coma for several weeks. She is back on campus for the spring 2013 semester and making great strides. During her Saint Mary's career she has been active in varsity volleyball, liturgical ministry, and as an orientation leader.
The dance, featuring music by the Johnny Holm Band, will be held in the gymnasium from 8:30 to midnight. Ticket prices are $18 per person or $30 per couple. To purchase tickets or receive more information, contact Lance Thompson at 457-1686. Dance tickets will also be available at the door.
The benefit dance has become an annual tradition since its start in 2001 by students in honor of Taylor Richmond, son of SMU staff member Nikki Richmond and Nick Richmond of Cochrane. Each year this event benefits someone in the SMU community in need.
