A. Ray Olpin Student Union

The University of Utah

Event Details

Started in 2011, the Union Scholarship Celebration has raised money for the Union Scholarship fund. Because of support from donors like you, we are excited to announce that the Union is now able to provide $30,000 in scholarships this year, including several four-year scholarships to incoming first-year students and a scholarship for a refugee student.

We invite you to join us in celebrating and recognizing student involvement and leadership. Help the Union raise money for scholarships while enjoying scholarship award presentations, a catering showcase provided by Dining Services, and over a hundred silent auction items!

VIP Reception 6:00-7:00 p.m.
Sponsors are invited to join us an hour before the main event for a private pre-party VIP reception featuring gourmet hors d’oeuvres and delicious cocktails and wine exclusively served at the reception. This is a private event reserved especially for our sponsors to meet the scholarship recipients, and to network with other individuals committed to the success of the students, and to the A. Ray Olpin Union’s mission.

Formal Program and Dinner 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
In addition to presenting our students with their scholarships, all our guests will enjoy a delicious dinner and a large silent auction. The dinner will be attended by University of Utah students, faculty, staff, and community members who are committed to the University’s mission and the students we serve.

The After Party 9:00 – Until the party stops!
New to the Scholarship Celebration this year, we will be hosting a party after the formal program. Dance the night away with energetic music, gourmet desserts and beverages as we celebrate our student leaders and 60 years of connecting our community at the A Ray Olpin University Union.

The night’s attire is business casual!

Tickets are $35 per person or $300 for a table of 8.
