The timing is perfect! Just when you’re getting that January cabin fever and want to get out of the house, along comes a brand new MSU Foundation event called Glitz & Glam! Every year, Glitz and Glam will take you on an entertaining journey for a good cause.

This year’s stop is New York. The event is being presented by Gate City Bank.

The evening will begin with a social on the streets of New York City and will include photo ops, games of chance, street food appetizers, entertainment of all kinds, including Jazz on Tap, and signature martinis served in commemorative glasses. The social will be held in the MSU Campus Center foyer from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

A New York-themed sit-down dinner of prime rib will be served at 6:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Luckasen Room. During dinner, guests will enjoy cash door prizes, student testimonials, Park Avenue luxury bingo, and games of Brooklyn or Bronx.

A live auction featuring prizes like a trip for two to see a New York Broadway show with airfare and a three-night stay. Many more fabulous auction items are being sponsored by local businesses and individuals.

The afterglow of the adventure will begin around 8:30 p.m., when guests can snack on New York style pizza, enjoy music, socialize with friends, and await the unveiling of next year’s location for Glitz and Glam.

Tickets for the Glitz & Glam Gala sell for $75 each, and tables of eight are available. Ticket price includes dinner, Park Avenue bingo playing cards, and your name entered for more than $1,000 in cash and prizes. All proceeds from this event will benefit Comet Athletics, the MSU Alumni Association, and the MSU Foundation to support students through their work to raise scholarship dollars. For more information or to purchase admission tickets, go to or call 701-788-4864.

Corporate packages are available. Whether you simply want to attend the event with your employees or if you’d like to get a kit on the recognition packages available, email John Klocke at
