"BonnieCon 2024" on Friday, May 10, 2024, from 4:00-6:00 PM in PRW Lobby

Dear Ithaca College Community,

After an incredible 36 years of dedicated service to Ithaca College, it's time to celebrate Bonnie Solt Prunty's well-deserved retirement! Please join us for a special event, Bonnies Retirement Celebration.

As Vice President of Student Affairs and Campus Life, Bonnie has left an indelible mark on our community. Her commitment to our students and tireless efforts to enhance campus life has truly made a difference. Now it's our turn to show our appreciation and bid her a fond farewell to a happy retirement.

The celebration theme is "BonnieCon," a fun nod to Bonnie's significant contributions and impact on the Ithaca College community. We encourage everyone to join the festivities as we celebrate Bonnie's remarkable career. If you plan to attend we ask that you please RSVP by Friday, April 26.

As part of the celebration event, we've set up a Tribute link where you can leave a video message for Bonnie. Please share your favorite memories, gratitude, or well wishes for her retirement journey. You can access the tribute link here: Tribute Link and also within the RSVP invitation link listed below. If you would like to make a contribution to the video message, please submit by Wednesday, May 1.

The Student Emergency Relief Fund, which Bonnie first established, provides crucial support to students in need. It is one of Bonnie's treasured professional contributions and an enduring testament to her legacy at IC. In honor of her retirement, we are encouraging donations to support this important resource. If you are unable to attend in person on May 10, donations can be made on our Giving website (use the drop down menu to select "Greatest Need: Student Emergency Relief Fund"). Those attending in person can donate at the event. All donations over $25 made during the event will receive a limited edition commemorative BonnieCon gift as a token of our appreciation for your donation.
