FAU Athletics Receives Corporate Commitment from SmileXpress
SmileXpress Signs 10-Year Gift Agreement
BOCA RATON , FL (March 26, 2008) – Florida Atlantic University and SmileXpress formalized a long-term relationship today with SmileXpress committing $1.25 million over 10 years.
“This FAU and SmileXpress relationship began as a sponsorship. They have grown into a donor and are now helping the entire University and its community,” said Craig Angelos, FAU’s athletics director. “We hope to see more and more of these types of relationships as we grow our athletics program.”
SmileXpress has committed to a sponsorship, scholarship dollars for the athletics department and philanthropy that will assist with the construction of the 30,000-seat, open-air football stadium, slated to be completed in the fall of 2010.
“Our support for the University and its students has no relationship to what we can gain financially. The attitude of the FAU Athletics Department has further proved that my contributions have been well spent. The FAU team represents the American spirit which is what has made the partnership between SmileXpress and FAU such a pleasure,” said Bob Lipton, CEO/Owner of SmileXpress.
