Alumni group to host Mardi Gras scholarship fund-raiser

DEARBORN--- The Alumni Affiliate of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters at the University of Michigan-Dearborn will host its seventh annual Mardi Gras Magic scholarship fund-raiser from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15 at the Summit on the Park in Canton.

The event will feature a silent auction, wine-tasting, appetizers, desserts and Mardi Gras-style music. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume, or participants can attend in work attire.

"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 Anthony Allegrina, co-chair of the CASL Alumni Affiliate. "Over the past seven 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 Mardi Gras Magic event is the group's primary fund-raiser.

Tickets are $35 per person. Sponsors who donate $200 will receive two tickets and special recognition. The alumni affiliate also is seeking donations of auction items.

Checks should be made payable to UM-Dearborn and sent to Susan Gedert, 2022 CASL Building, University of Michigan-Dearborn, 4901 Evergreen Rd., Dearborn, MI 48128. For more information, call (313) 436-9198.
