Sundresses and linen are the theme of the School of Social Work’s June 20 “Dinner with Dean,” an annual fundraiser hosted by the school’s Alumni Association to raise money for scholarships.
The event, which will be held at the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle, will offer supporters of the school an opportunity to meet, mingle and learn from Dean Cheryl Waites about exciting initiatives involving research, funding and faculty. As always, the event will boast a “strolling supper” and a silent auction with can’t-miss items such as gift certificates, original art, themed baskets, sports paraphernalia, food, clothing, jewelry and alumni apparel.
“‘Dinner with the Dean’ is one of the most anticipated events of the year for alumni,” said the association’s president, Larmender Davis. “Between the great food, the music, the bidding and the chance to catch up with friends and professors, there’s something for everyone.”
The social hour, cash bar and silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner and speakers at 6 p.m. Strolling food stations this year include a fruit, vegetables and cheese table, a mashed potato bar, carved turkey, and a variety of desserts.
Tickets are $25 for current School of Social Work students and $30 for the general public. To contribute an item to the auction, to buy tickets, or for more information on the event, please email Julie Alter-Kay, special assistant to Dean Waites, at firstname.lastname@example.org
