Presidents Honors Gala at MidAmerica Nazarene University
 

President's Honors

Join us for the 2015 President's Honors Gala, a night to benefit student scholarships at MidAmerica Nazarene University!

Friday, April 10, 2015 | Cook Center

President's Honors is MNU's premier annual fundraising event to benefit student scholarships. Last year, the event raised more than $550,000, bringing the three-year total to $1.35 million for scholarships. Each year, Cook Center is transformed into an elegant venue for the silent and live auctions, entertainment and awards. A gallery of photos from past events is available online.

According to MNU President David Spittal, "We have much for which to be thankful. Even though stories of the past continue to inspire us, there is a new story to be written; there is a new dream for the university that is capturing our imagination."

Cunninghams LifetimeAchievementAward PH15Thank you for partnering with us as we write that story. On behalf of our entire campus community, we extend special thanks to our event sponsors, auction donors and attendees as we honor two extraordinary people—Drs. Paul and Connie Cunningham—with our 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award.

We are also on the lookout for donations of popular, exciting or one-of-a-kind items for our silent and live auctions during the gala. Here's where you can learn more about donating auction items.

Tickets for the event are now available. You can reserve your seat today.
