'November Indulge' will support scholarships at UM-Dearborn
Affiliate of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters at the University
of Michigan-Dearborn will host its "November Indulge" scholarship
fundraiser from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11 at the Henry Ford
The event will feature a silent auction, wine-tasting, appetizers, desserts
and live jazz music.
"As fun as the evening will be for everyone involved, the most important
thing to remember is that all proceeds will benefit the CASL Alumni Affiliate
scholarship fund," according to Susan Gedert, alumni affiliate coordinator
and communications editor. "Over the years, we have helped many outstanding
liberal arts students in financial need pay their tuition bills, and the
need is certainly greater now than it has been in years."
Founded in 1995, the scholarship is funded solely through donations received
from CASL alumni and friends. The "November Indulge" event,
formerly known as Mardi Gras Magic, is the group's primary fundraiser.
Tickets are $45 per person. Sponsors who donate $200 will receive two
tickets and special recognition. Tickets are limited and will not be sold
at the door. The alumni affiliate also is seeking donations of auction
