Join Newman University and hosts J.V. and Veronica Johnston for the "Party on the Plaza - New Orleans Style" to raise money for student scholarships. The event will take place from 4:30 to 11:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 2 on Founders Plaza, just south of the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman campus. The party will feature a live auction with such items as the maquette of the recently beatified Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman statue on the Newman campus created by Babs Mellor.
Along with the live auction, the party will feature food and drink, a silent auction, a dance to the local Zydeco Cajun band The Mudbugs, and fireworks. All proceeds will benefit scholarships at Newman University.
