Eugene Vilfordi's Legacy of Verse

Eugene Vilfordi, UD Trustee and Philanthropist

University of Dallas—50th Year Gala, September 22, 2006

Gene VilfordiIt was truly a night to remember 

The fourth Friday in September

UD’s remarkable 50 year story

Its struggles, its joys and its glory

A story that had to be told

In one magnificent night

We gathered to bask in its light……

So picture the scene if you ‘re able—

A thousand were sitting at table

In joyful celebration

From all across the nation.
