Saint Mary’s University has nearly reached its goal of raising $20,000 for this year’s Taylor Richmond Benefit recipient Joseph Row of Winona.
Joseph is the 11-year-old son of Darren Row who teaches at Saint Mary’s University. Joseph was diagnosed with leukemia in July 2018 and faces a three-year course of treatments.
The Hall of Fame Room in the Toner Student Center was transformed into the Mario Cart's Mushroom Kingdom, complete with a Mario Kart photo booth and video game stations.
The benefit has become an annual student tradition since its start in 2001 in honor of Taylor Richmond, son of Saint Mary’s staff member Nikki Richmond. Each year this event benefits someone in need who has ties to the university community. For more photos, go to smumn.edu/trbenefit19.
