“After Hours,” a monthly social sponsored by the Division of Business and Computer Information Systems at Mayville State University will not be held in February. People are encouraged instead to attend “A Sparkling Affair,” a fundraiser being held to benefit a hospitality project for the Edson & Margaret Larson Alumni and Leadership Center.

“A Sparkling Affair” will provide a fun evening of entertainment (great love songs sung by John Klocke), great appetizers, games, door prizes, and silent auction. The event will be held Thursday, February 28, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the MSU Campus Center Luckasen Room.

Tickets for the “A Sparkling Affair” event sell for $25.00 each, and are available by calling the MSU Foundation at 701-788-4687. Ticket holders who attend the gala will have the opportunity to participate in a spectacular treasure hunt featuring prizes from Riddle’s Jewelry. First prize is a ¾ carat diamond pendant ($2,000 retail value). Second prize is a Comet blue diamond ring ($1,070 retail value), and third prize is a pair of diamond solitaire earrings ($500 retail value).

Event creators and organizers Jennifer Kohls and Debbie Hagen of Mayville have handcrafted many unique and beautiful jewelry items that will be among the prizes given away throughout the evening. A minimum of 20 jewelry items (valued at $40-$120 each) will be given away as door prizes. Additionally, a number of Kohls’ and Hagen’s creations will be included in a bid or buy silent auction.

The next “After Hours” is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the home of Kim Lauf, 115 3rd Ave. SE, Mayville, N.D. All women are invited to attend.    

A donation of $10.00 per person will be taken at the door. All who attend will have an opportunity to win a purse filled with $50.00 worth of treasures. The drawing will be held at approximately 6:30 p.m.
