The annual dinner in honor of deceased alumnus Jon Scharfenberger raises scholarship funds for students who are pro-life leaders. Also today, Jon’s uncle Dennis Scharfenberger was consecrated bishop of Albany, New York. Jon’s mother Anna spoke at the dinner, as did AMU president Jim Towey and the founder of the entire Ave Maria project, Tom Monaghan.
