Glitz & Glam! A Night in New York

Saturday, February 2, 2019

sponsored by


The timing is perfect! Right when you are getting that January cabin fever and want to get out of the house, along comes a brand new MSU Foundation event called Glitz and Glam! Every Glitz and Glam will take you on an entertaining journey for a good cause. This year's stop is New York! Bring all of your friends for a night on the town. You'll experience fabulous entertainment on the streets of New York, enjoy New York street food, and see street performers. Take your picture in front of the Statue of Liberty or New York skyline and text it to your friends! Have your photo taken at the photo booth provided by Jacobson Studio. All of this and more happens during the opening social from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Thirsty? The cash bar is available for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, along with one very special fundraiser martini, created just for the event. Part of every martini sold will go to support Mayville State students through the event! And best of all, you get to keep the commemorative glass! You'll want to collect souvenirs from every Glitz and Glam location.

Hungry? You're in for a real treat with a special sit-down dinner of prime rib and New York-themed accompaniments cooked by our very own Brooklyn Bryan Karolus. But the meal isn't all you'll savor. During the dinner, you'll see more entertainment and your ticket will include game cards for Park Avenue Bingo. We're talking real luxury bingo with cash and prizes for every winner. And that's on top of cash door prizes totaling $1,000 throughout dinner. John Klocke will be your emcee and I bet we can get him to sing New York, New York. The place will be filled with students helping, from serving to giving little testimonials on their favorite place, Mayville State.

Ever been to a New York auction? Ever been to New York to see a Broadway show? Ever flown to the Twin Cities for a Vikings game and had prime seats? Have you ever served your friends drinks in the man cave on your very own Comets bar? Have you ever wanted to invite a small group of your 50 closest friends to a barbecue cooked by the Ewens and hosted by President Brian Van Horn? Or maybe you'd like to be waited on by all of the MSU Comet athletes for a group of your friends. Maybe you'd like to invite 50 friends or customers to a special Farmers Bowl or Homecoming tailgate party with free food and drinks for all! This is just part of the list of top-shelf live auction items you may want to bid on. Check out a listing of the auction items.

Seating. Reserved tables are available for groups of eight. With our special set-up of the space, seating will be limited to just 22 tables, so if you are wanting to get a group together, we would advise early ticket purchase. Non-group tickets and seats will also be available for individuals. Businesses can also use this event as a great post-holiday party for employees. A limited number of business party tables will be available while they last. Tickets are going fast! We strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets by Jan. 15.
