On Saturday, April 28th, Lourdes University hosts its annual, premier scholarship fundraising event – Luminations! – at the Franciscan Center, 6832 Convent Blvd., in Sylvania. Each year, an audience of more than 500 guests gathers to celebrate private higher education and raise funds for student scholarships. The event begins at 6 p.m. and is hosted by Honorary Co-Chairs Ramirez and Faye Eidi and Lourdes University President Mary Ann Gawelek and her husband Frank Kleshinski.

Throughout the evening, guests can enjoy cocktails, grazing stations, a live scholarship auction, an expansive silent auction and music by local band Organized K-OS. In the theater, attendees will delight in performances by the Ballet Theatre of Toledo, the Toledo Opera, and the Toledo Symphony. Lourdes alumna Chrys Peterson is the emcee for the evening.

Tickets are $125 each or $150 for patron tickets. Table and event sponsorships are also available.
