Annie & Lucas Patrick–Mary E. Gambee Memorial Fund Established

Duke Athletics recently received a major gift from former student-athletes Annie Mulholland Patrick '15 and Lucas Patrick '15 in partnership with donor Pradeep Baliga '06. The gift will be used to endow the Annie & Lucas Patrick–Mary E. Gambee Memorial Fund, which is a scholarship that was established in the name of Annie's late mother, Mary, and will be awarded annually to a current student-athlete.

Annie and Lucas are the youngest former student-athletes to create a scholarship endowment for Duke Athletics, while Pradeep becomes the first donor to team up with former Duke student-athletes to create this unique gift.
"Duke was, and continues to be, a special place for both Lucas and I," Annie said of why they decided to create the scholarship. "Our time on campus played a pivotal role in our development on and off the field and we would not be where we are today without it, which is why when this opportunity came up, we jumped at the chance to pay it forward for future Blue Devils."
