From Alumnus Steve Wynn, $7.5 M Toward Perelman Quad

A commitment of $7.5 million from Trustee and Alumnus Stephen Wynn has sent the Perelman Quad project over the half-way mark, President Judith Rodin has announced. So far the Quad's funding includes a $20 million commitment from the Perelman family, Mr. Wynn's $7.5 million, and $2.5 million in class gifts made Alumni Weekend. The projected cost of $69 million includes a deferred- maintenance figure of $9 million already in hand for Logan Hall restoration.

Mr. Wynn, an alumnus of The College who is president and CEO of Mirage Resorts, Inc., has earmarked his gift for the common space that will link Irvine Auditorium, Houston Hall, and Williams and Logan Halls in the plan announced this spring (Almanac April 25).

Mr. Wynn serves on two Trustees committees--Budget and Finance, and External Affairs--and was active in the planning of the 1990 celebration of Penn's 250th.
