Eastern’s 2016 Sapphire Ball is set for Saturday, February 20 in the E.E. Tourtellotte Student Center Ballroom in Wilburton. It will be an elegant black tie evening, filled with delicious food and fun entertainment. Guests can participate in a silent and live auction, as well as dance the night away at the after party.
