The most prestigious event on the College’s calendar, Founders’ Day is an opportunity to raise crucial funds for student scholarships at Le Moyne. During the Gala, the College will present Robert Dracker, MHA, MBA, CPI, medical director of Summerwood Pediatrics and founder and president of Infusacare Medical Services Inc., with its highest honor, the Simon Le Moyne Award.

What is Founders’ Day?


Founders’ Day, presented by Le Moyne's Board of Regents, is the most prestigious event held at the college and both commemorates and celebrates the establishment of Le Moyne College

A key component of the Founders’ Day Gala is the presentation of the Simon Le Moyne Award for outstanding leadership for the benefit of society


What is the Simon Le Moyne Award?

This award memorializes Father Le Moyne, a French Jesuit, an ambassador of peace and a person of faith, vision and courage

How can my support impact students and the community?

The Founders’ Day Gala has a direct impact on Le Moyne students and the quality of life in Central New York. By recognizing outstanding examples of community service, this event serves to reinforce – among Le Moyne alumni, students, employees and friends, and the wider Central New York community – the value of service to others
