Celebrating Christine

Mrs Lynn's birthday party

Party of the season!

On April 20, Lynn’s board of trustees chair and benefactor Christine E. Lynn marked two important milestones in one day. Just hours after breaking ground on the new university center that bears her name, she celebrated her 70th birthday with 200 friends at a black-and-white gala on the Lynn campus.

President Kevin Ross delivered a Champagne toast with a show-stopping visual aid.

“Christine, to say thank you for all you do for our campus and community, we wanted to go big,” he said. He then unveiled a billboard-sized photo of Mrs. Lynn that the university had arranged in Times Square to thank her for her commitment.

The guest of honor—the only one dressed in anything but white or black—wore a red gown as she mingled, danced and laughed with her guests. The details and decorations in the gym (transformed into a glamorous party space) were perfectly Christine Lynn. Specialty cocktails were served in disco ball cocktail glasses and an ABBA medley was performed—her favorite dance music.

The high point of the evening was a tender gesture from Lynn students. As they entered, 70 students sang Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You.” Each student carried a candlelit birthday cake. Guests then joined in singing, “Happy Birthday.”

The party favors? Red Chanel lipstick, the birthday girl’s signature shade.
