Thomas Westfall and family

Why do you choose to give to the VAF and support Virginia Athletics?
“When the VAF Social Tours come to our town, we hear rousing speeches from coaches and staff members. It is great to see how many awesome coaches we have. My heart goes out to the student-athlete guest speakers who articulate the power of their scholarship and the chance to attend Mr. Jefferson’s University. These are the stories that keep me motivated and why I will continue to support Virginia Athletics and the VAF.”

What are your favorite Virginia sports memories?
“There are many special Virginia Athletics memories for my family. While football is king of sports for me, basketball is key. I cannot attend often, but at a home men’s basketball game last season I was delighted with the energy and excitement in the arena–college sports at its best. It was a truly amazing experience. As a former oarsman, I have enjoyed following the rowing team through their many successes over the years. Baseball’s Davenport Field is spectacular and any time my family and I get to attend, it is truly a special experience.”
