    "Fans, business leaders, students, alumni, and the entire community - WE are creating UC Athletics history!"
    - Larry Sheakley

    On September 24th, UC Athletics announced that local entrepreneur and UC Athletics benefactor Larry Sheakley issued a $1 million matching gift challenge to help in the final fundraising stretch - two short weeks later, that challenge had been met.

    Then Sheakley made an even bigger announcement:

    "I am incredibly proud to be a part of this wonderful University. In response to your generosity and team spirit, I am personally extending the matching gift an additional $1.5 million. I am certain that the enthusiasm and pride we all feel for UC and the City of Cincinnati right now will continue, and I feel confident we will make our goal."
