Eastern announces date for annual Sapphire Ball
WILBURTON, OK (Dec. 12, 2012) – Eastern Oklahoma State College will host its annual Sapphire Ball on Saturday, March 2 in Wilburton. The event, now in its fourth year, will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. in the Student Center.
“Diamonds are Forever” is the theme of this year’s black-tie event which includes dinner, silent and live auctions, and dancing. Proceeds from the event will fund Eastern’s Sapphire Scholarship for deserving students. Last year’s event raised approximately $8,000 for student scholarships.
“We’re very pleased with the support we received during last year’s event from our alumni, faculty, staff, local businesses and other donors,” said Treva Kennedy, director of Institutional Advancement. “Our goal is to increase that amount this year and create even more opportunities for student scholarships.”
The event will also honor outstanding Eastern employees, alumni and community supporters. This year’s awardees have not yet been announced.
