Deacon Club Hosts Annual Thank-A-Thon


Winston-Salem, N.C. – This October and November the Deacon Club hosted the annual Thank-A-Thon where Wake Forest student-athletes came together to show their appreciation of the more than 4,500 supporters who help fund Demon Deacon Athletics and provide opportunities for every student-athlete and Deacon team. Throughout each of the three nights of the Thank-A-Thon, student-athletes from virtually every team took the time to call or hand sign notes to Deacon Club donors.

As can be seen in the below graphic, there was an impressive student-athlete turn out and over 3,600 phone calls were made to Demon Deacon supporters throughout each of the three nights.

“The Thank-A-Thon is truly a unique event that both our student-athletes and donors look forward to and enjoy very much. We’re so appreciative of the generosity of our donors and it’s an amazing thing to be able to connect student-athletes with the very people that have made so much possible for them.” said Barry Faircloth, Associate Athletic Director, Development.
