Alumni Weekend

Crummer Alumni Weekend is the biggest alumni event of the year! This annual event is a multi-day celebration with a schedule packed with educational, family-friends, and social events.

Crummer Oktoberfest Scholarship Fundraiser

A flagship engagement and networking opportunity for the Crummer Alumni Network and friends, this fundraiser offers attendees the opportunity to give back to Crummer while enjoying delicious German food, wonderful company, and great entertainment from both the Celebrity Servers and Oktoberfest musicians.

For 14 years, Linda ’00MBA and Theo Hollerbach have opened the doors of their award-winning German restaurant, Hollerbach’s Willow Tree, to the Crummer School for this special night. A scholarship recipient herself, Linda credits her Crummer education for the restaurant’s success and developed the idea for this fundraiser after attending a class at what is now Crummer’s Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership. Fourteen years later, and over $100,000 raised for scholarships, we are still going strong.

Enjoy the sights from the 2019 Crummer Oktoberfest Scholarship Fundraiser in the photo album below. We are proud to announce it was a record-setting year, with over $22,000 raised for the Crummer Scholarship Fund!
