Other recent gifts advancing the arena include $5 million from Alice Goodwin and William H. Goodwin (Darden '66) of Richmond. Mr. Goodwin is a member of the Board of Visitors and a generous contributor to the Darden School and the Cancer Center. Fellow Richmonders Robert V. Hatcher (College '53) and Anthony F. Markel (College '64) also have made pledges in excess of $1 million, as has Paul H. Saunders (College '77) of Christiansted, Virgin Islands. A $1.5 million gift from an anonymous donor financed a thorough renovation of the seventy-nine-year-old Memorial Gymnasium. Used extensively for intramural sports, Mem Gym is now the home arena for the wrestling and women's volleyball teams. The gift also funded upgrades to the wrestling practice facilities at Onesty Hall and provided operating and scholarship support for the program.

Carl Smith (College '51) and Hunter Smith, whose 1997 challenge gift kicked off the expansion of Scott Stadium at Carl Smith Center, issued a new $22 million challenge in April to fund a $47 million performing arts center. This flexible facility, to be built on the corner of Massie Road and Emmet Street near John Paul Jones Arena, will include a concert hall of at least 1,200 seats. The Smiths also provided $1.5 million to support a student marching and concert band.
