VIDEO: Around the World in 80 Days with the DeSales Dinner Dance

by Tom McNamara | Mar 25, 2015

On Saturday, March 21, the University hosted its 34th annual dinner dance in Billera Hall. 

As the university’s major event-based fundraiser, 100 percent of the evening’s income, about $150,000 annually, goes directly into financial aid for DeSales students, 97 percent of whom receive some form of financial assistance. Chairpersons for the dance were Michael & Michele Pessina, and they were joined by area business, professional, and community leaders as well as DeSales alumni, who are sponsoring tables or providing contributions.

Music was provided by The Rich Postmontier Ensemble, and as part of the evening’s festivities, six DeSales dance students performed an opening number. Will Neuert, associate professor of theatre, created the decorations for this year’s Around the World in 80 Days-themed dance as he has for the past 17 years.
