"November Indulge 2016" helps to provide much needed scholarship support
The CASL Alumni Affiliate hosted its twentieth annual fund-raising event this past November 11 at the Fairlane Center. “November Indulge” provided great opportunities for networking and socializing, and the event raised several thousand dollars to support scholarships for deserving CASL students.
More than 90 alumni, faculty and friends attended the event, indulging their senses by tasting wine from the world’s leading vineyards (in conjunction with Village Corner of Ann Arbor) and craft beer from Dearborn Brewing, by enjoying a delicious buffet dinner and mouth-watering desserts prepared by the wonderful staff at Picasso Restaurant Group, and by listening to the live jazz music of Trio-three. Event guests also bid on one-of-a-kind auction gems that included tickets to local entertainment and sporting events, dining packages, hotel stays, and a variety of items for gift giving. The Affiliate extends its gratitude to the event sponsors and auction donors.
This past fall, the CASL Alumni Affiliate presented eight scholarships to CASL students for the 2016-17 academic year, bringing the total amount awarded, over the past 20 years, to $165,000 to 110 students.
