What is Party on the Plaza?

The annual Party on the Plaza fundraiser has become a Newman University staple. Themes including western, Oktoberfest and A Night in Tuscany have set the tone for a fun evening of raising much-needed funds for student financial aid.

Donors and participants return year after year to enjoy a fun night with friends and peers while dining on delicious cuisine. But they are really there for a greater purpose — to make it possible for the next generation of professionals to earn a college degree.

Supporters of Party on the Plaza know that 100% of event proceeds will help fund student scholarships.

Millions of dollars have been raised since its inception to support the Newman Fund, which is strictly reserved for financial aid for students.
