Arnold Palmer Charitable Trust Pledges $250,000 to Ridge Collection at Mercyhurst University
“One of the most unexpected but lasting friendships made during my time in public service was my friendship with Arnold Palmer. He was many things to many people, but to me, a dear and beloved friend for over 20 years. I think of him often and miss the regular visits and times together when the conversation often turned to politics and government at both the state and national level. I am truly honored and grateful that the legacy of our friendship will be part of the Mercyhurst archives.” – Tom Ridge
In honor of that friendship, the trustees of the Arnold D. Palmer 2003 Charitable Trust have pledged $250,000 to Mercyhurst University to be used for renovations showcasing the Tom & Michele Ridge Collection in the university’s Hammermill Library.
