Saint Mary’s University has surpassed its goal of raising $20,000 for this year’s Taylor Richmond Benefit recipient Joseph Row of Winona. Joseph is the 11-year-old son of Darren Row who teaches at Saint Mary’s University. Darren and his wife, Jill (Arens) Row, are also alumni of Saint Mary’s. Joseph was diagnosed with leukemia in July 2018 and faces a three-year course of treatments. Proceeds from the dance and a silent auction are assisting the Row family with medical expenses and travel costs. The benefit has become an annual student tradition since its start in 2001 in honor of Taylor Richmond, son of Saint Mary’s staff member Nikki Richmond. Each year this event benefits someone in need who has ties to the university community.
