What’s the scoop?

Get ready to put on your glad rags and join us for a rip-roaring celebration right on our very own campus plaza. We’re bringing back the glitz and glamour of the roaring twenties — a time of flappers, jazz and all-around jolly fun. It’s a swell opportunity to let loose, have a blast and support a truly noble cause.

The skinny on the event:

  • When: 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30
  • Location: Newman University Founders Plaza
  • Dress Code: Dapper 1920’s attire encouraged, but modern threads are the cat’s pajamas too.

Why we’re blowing this giggle water:

This shindig ain’t just for kicks and giggles. We’re rallying our Newman University family to raise funds for a cause that’s the cat’s meow — student financial aid. Your generous contributions, whether through volunteering, donating auction items or buying tickets, will make a real McCoy difference in the lives of our students. Let’s help them chase their dreams without worrying about the cabbage.
