Lourdes University will host its annual, premier scholarship fundraising event, Luminations, on April 29, 2017 at the Franciscan Center. An audience of over 500 guests will gather to celebrate higher education and raise funds for student scholarships. The event will be hosted by honorary co-chairs, Mike and Jennifer Koralewski and Lourdes President, Mary Ann Gawelek and her husband Frank Kleshinski.

Featured during this special evening is an exceptional silent auction with over 100 packages donated by various businesses and individuals in the community. Guests will enjoy a remarkable assortment of fine grazing stations and cocktails, while mingling, shopping and listening to live entertainment.

As the evening progresses, our guests will move into the theatre for the entertainment program. The 2017 line-up includes the Toledo Ballet, Toledo Opera and Toledo Symphony.  Also joining us this year will be the Toledo School for the Arts’ Afro-Caribbean Dance & Drum Ensemble.
