HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – This Saturday evening, MSU-Northern will host their annual fundraiser ball in the Armory Gymnasium with a twist. Northern Alumni Foundation Executive Director Jim Bennett says this years’ event is called the “Northern Beach Ball”.
“It’s our annual scholarship fundraiser. This year, it’s an island theme. And we’ve got some live auction items, some raffles. We’re going to do a hula hoop contest. So, it should be a fun evening.”
Bennett says the money they raise funds scholarships for Northern students and they have a goal of $20,000.
“So they’re $1,000 scholarships that go to a variety of students on campus. And what it really helps us do is find those students that need some extra help and have been doing a great job in the classroom. And we try to find a way to reward them so that they can continue their education here.”
Tickets for the Ball are $40 per person and can be found online at northernalumnifoundation.org or by calling 265-3711. Doors open at 6 PM and dinner will be served at 7. A band from Helena called Stumblin’ Free will be performing after the dinner.
