Lynn University to dedicate Bobby Campbell Stadium March 26
Published Feb. 26, 2014
More than a year after breaking ground, Lynn University is preparing to dedicate Bobby Campbell Stadium on Wednesday, March 26. The new stadium makes it possible for Lynn University to add men’s lacrosse to its roster of sports.
The donors who made this project a reality will be in attendance for the dedication of the Bobby Campbell Stadium. A tailgating party will take place at 4 p.m., and will include student activities, face- painting and snacks. Following the tailgating party, the dedication will take place on the field of Bobby Campbell Stadium at 5:30 p.m. Medals will then be awarded to the various donors, including Robert (“Bobby”) Campbell, the lead donor, who provided $1.2 million. An anonymous donor gave $1 million toward the naming of Malfitano Field in honor of Senior Vice President Gregory Malfitano.
There will also be a surprise half-time-like performance after the dedication.
“With the addition of Bobby Campbell Stadium, our
championship soccer teams, as well as our inaugural men’s lacrosse team, can
finally play games under the lights,” said Lynn President Kevin M. Ross.
“Our stadium namesake, Bobby Campbell, and so many other generous people made
this facility possible, and we are excited to have our donors, students,
faculty, staff and their families join us as we celebration the dedication and
include a few surprises.”
The tailgate and dedication ceremony will include:
- Free snacks
- Stadium Tours
- The starting line-ups of Lynn soccer and lacrosse teams
- Inaugural season apparel for purchase
- Flag raising
