North Oldham High School graduate and Transylvania University sophomore Stephanie Townsend is one of 91 students who recently participated in Transylvania’s 18th annual Crimson Christmas philanthropic event.

Transylvania’s Office of Residence Life and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Bluegrass sponsored Crimson Christmas to provide children with a holiday-filled morning. Children paired with students from each residence hall to attend a carnival with booths hosted by a variety of Transylvania organizations. Activities included face painting, arts and crafts, trivia and other carnival games. The children also enjoyed a visit from Santa Claus, who came bearing gifts. 

Townsend is the daughter of Blake Townsend of Goshen and Donna Foust of Louisville.
