On Saturday, November 22nd, the Knights of Columbus hosted Campus Ministry’s first ever Dinner Date Dance in the Campus Ministry Center. Over 80 people attended the event and, through ticket sales, over $700 was raised to help Christians in the Middle East.
The Campus Ministry Center was completely transformed from its typical set up, with flowers, black and white decorations, and candlelight along with a dance floor.
The evening started with an hour during which those in attendance, dressed in semi-formal attire, enjoyed conversation and delicious hors d’oeuvres. This was followed by a sit-down dinner with a three course menu prepared by Assistant Chaplain Father Justin Brophy featuring pasta in vodka sauce, chicken stuffed with couscous and asparagus, and an array of freshly baked desserts. After dinner, students headed to the dance floor, which was full for the rest of the evening.
This event was a complete success and was better than I could have imagined. A huge thanks to Father Justin, Community Life, and everyone who helped put this event together. Everyone had an amazing time and it was a great alternative to spending a Saturday night in the library or off campus and provided a fun environment where everyone could get dressed up and have fun.
