The 8th Annual Sparty Gala — which raises money for book scholarships for Livingston County seniors heading to Michigan State University — is set for 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at Oak Pointe Country Club in Brighton. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres kick off the night at 6, followed by a plated dinner, and music provided by MSU students.
The evening also features a silent auction with all proceeds supporting the MSU Textbook Scholarship Fund of the club. Last year, the group raised $17,000 to offer 15 Livingston County high school seniors scholarships for their freshman year at MSU.
Shelley Appelbaum, MSU Executive Associate Athletic Director, is one of the featured guest speakers for the night.
