This benefit event raises money for the Morgan Harrington Memorial Scholarship Fund at the medical school. Morgan Harrington is the late daughter of Vice Dean Dan and Gil Harrington. Morgan was an intern at the school and was attending Virginia Tech before she was tragically murdered in 2009. The scholarship fund was established in her honor and, to date, has generated over $250,000 benefiting students at the School of Medicine.
