University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s signature scholarship event, the Black & Gold Scholarship Ball, is almost here. The event returns after a year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic and will be the culminating event of UW Oshkosh’s sesquicentennial. The public is invited Nov. 13 to help the University raise funds for scholarships to support UWO students.

The event is hosted by UWO Chancellor Andrew and Karen Leavitt, and coordinated by Advancement, part of the Division of University Affairs. Oshkosh Corp. is the presenting sponsor.

The formal event includes cocktails, dinner and entertainment at the Gibson Social Club, 537 N. Main St., Oshkosh. Parking is free and adjacent to the building.

The schedule for the evening includes:

  • Cocktails at 5 p.m.
  • Dinner at 6:30 p.m.
  • Entertainment and dancing at 8 p.m.

The No. 1 issue facing UWO students is their financial ability to attend college. Participation in the Black & Gold Scholarship Ball helps support this need.

Tickets are $125 per person or $1,500 for a corporate table.

Reserve your space and select your dinner choice online here. Reservations are due Oct. 29.
