Duke has raised more money in the last twelve months than in any previous fiscal year. More money flowed in after the lacrosse scandal hit the news. According to Kenny Dennard, the president of the Duke Club of Houston, "I really look at it as a galvanizing point... a galvanizing point for love of Duke and love for Duke."
This has been a difficult time for Duke, but as most of us know, it doesn't define Duke. The support and love of friends and alums does a pretty good job, though.
