Lourdes University hosted its signature fundraising event, Luminations, on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the Franciscan Center. Thanks to the generous support of over 450 guests, Lourdes raised nearly $300,000 for student scholarships! Honorary co-chairs, Ramy and Faye Eidi, along with Lourdes President, Dr. Mary Ann Gawelek and her husband Frank Kleshinski, hosted this marvelous evening.

Featured during this special event was a unique silent auction, an assortment of fine grazing stations, and after-dinner cocktails with live music provided by Organized K-OS. During the performance gala, guests were delighted with entertainment from the Ballet Theatre of Toledo, the Toledo Opera, and the Toledo Symphony.

Thank you to all sponsors, donors, friends, and community members for joining Lourdes in the celebration of high education and for supporting future Gray Wolves!
