Thank you for generously supporting Avila University through the 
43rd annual Steer Dinner & Auction!

More than $1.07 million was raised for student scholarships at the 43rd annual Steer Dinner & Auction, allowing Avila students to receive a values-based education. Steer is an important Avila tradition, and more than 660 alumni, Sisters of St. Joseph, friends, faculty emeriti, faculty, staff members and students came together to celebrate.

Special thanks to our honorary chairs, Rodd and Martha '66 Staker, and our event chairs, Kevin and Tricia '00 Lyon, for helping us exceed $1 million for student scholarships for the fifth consecutive year! 

Save the date for next year's Steer Dinner & Auction: February 1, 2020!
