Thank you,

for helping make the inaugural Applause for the Cause: Educate A Nurse event a tremendous success! More than 200 attendees enjoyed an incredible evening of entertainment filled with applause for pianists, dancers, singers, and a humorist. We are grateful for the generous outpouring of support from Honorary Event Chair Patty McDonald, the Styslingers, event sponsors, the community, and Board members. Also, we appreciate our nursing students and faculty, Miss Alabama Ashley Davis, and the performers who donated their time to make the evening one to cherish.This year the UAB School of Nursing’s Board of Visitors’ event raised more than $100,000 to support the Emergency Fund Student Success and nursing scholarships. The emergency fund meets students’ unforeseen short-term financial emergency needs so they can get back on their feet and continue their education. Support of this fund is very timely in light of the recent tornadoes that devastated so many lives, including the lives of some of our nursing students. Thank you for being part of this memorable event that helps students realize their dream of becoming a nurse.

The School of Nursing would like to give special thanks to the
