Saint Joseph University in West Hartford recently received a grant to establish the Fund of Bruyette facilities.
On November 9, 2021, Brian J. Mylod, Joe Spalluto, and John Duffy introduced USJ President Rhona Free, a check for $ 500,000 to establish the Bruyette Facilities Fund that will support the improvements and maintenance of the Bruyette Athenaeum and the Bruyette Natatorium on the USJ campus.
Mylod, Spalluto and Duffy spearheaded a fundraising effort to recognize the leadership of Kathleen Barry Bruyette and her late husband, Gene Bruyette. Mylod commented: “Gene Bruyette was one of the founders of the financial services firm Keefe, Bruyette and Woods and many current and former members of that firm credit Gene and Kathy for their professional success. We were looking for a way to thank you for all that you have done. Because philanthropy and Saint Joseph University have been priorities in their lives, we decided to make a contribution to celebrate their generosity. ”
Three generations of the Bruyette family, Trustees, friends and donors gathered on campus for the presentation and celebratory lunch.
