The Celebration of Champions is a unique event held every other year to express our appreciation for the generous and loyal support of VAF Endowment and Scholarship Society donors. Student-athlete recipients of the endowed scholarships are invited to enjoy the evening with donors that includes cocktails and dinner, guest speakers, a student-athlete panel discussion, photo booth and a highlight video of student-athletes in action.

Among those recognized for their generosity in 2016 were the 39 Founding Donors, donors to 66 Named Endowed Scholarships and 13 Operational Endowments, nine Out-of-State Scholarship Society Donors and 51 In-State Scholarship Society Donors.
