ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida couple has made the largest alumni donation pledge in the history of the University of Central Florida.

The Orlando-based university said Friday that Vince and Joyce Virga of Fort Lauderdale had pledged a $10.25 million donation to the school.

The donation will be used to create the Virga College of Business Fund, which will support a program dedicated to future sales leaders.

The Virgas are in the field of information technology. They credit the university with leading them to professional success.

A portion of their donation also will fund university athletics.
