Wei scholarship fundraiser a hit

The Graduate School of Pubic Health’s spring fundraiser benefiting the Evelyn H. Wei Scholarship Award in Epidemiology held June 3 in Parran Hall drew more than 250 people and raised $3,495.

The fundraiser offered shoppers jewelry, photography, artwork and quilts donated by faculty and staff of the Department of Epidemiology. A silent auction and door prizes raffle contributed to the day’s fun.

The scholarship fund was established in memory of Wei, a Pitt researcher and GSPH alumna, who was killed by a vehicle in 2004 near her Regent Square home.

Since December 2004, the fund has raised a total of $45,341.

Contributions can be made directly to the Evelyn H. Wei Memorial Scholarship Fund by sending a check payable to University of Pittsburgh to: Apryl Eshelman, A631 Crabtree Hall, 130 DeSoto Street, Pittsburgh 15261 and writing Evelyn Wei Fund in the memo line.

Kim Sutton-Tyrell, professor and vice chair for academics in the Department of Epidemiology, who helped organize the fundraiser, shows off some of the goods on sale.
