Join UNT Alumni for the Emerald Ball Goes Green

January 18th, 2012 Posted in Alumni News

Join fellow UNT alumni Feb. 25 for the Emerald Ball Goes Green at UNT’s Apogee Stadium. The annual event helps to raise money for UNT’s standout Emerald Eagle Scholars program, which helps high-achieving but financially challenged students achieve their college dreams. The program provides students with financial and academic support and campus connections to help them succeed in college and earn their degrees. Since its inception in 2007, the award-winning program has helped more than 2,400 students — most of whom are first-generation college students — attend UNT. Already, nearly 170 Emerald Eagle Scholars have graduated early or on time.

By attending the sixth annual Emerald Ball, you can meet scholars and hear how the program and its supporters have changed their lives. You also will spend the evening in UNT’s green stadium, the nation’s first newly constructed LEED Platinum-certified college football stadium, and get an intimate look at the stadium’s Club Level and suites. In keeping with the sustainability theme, the ball will feature recycled and reusable material and local vendors who provide the food and music.

The “Green-Tie” event will be held in the Club Level of UNT’s Apogee Stadium starting at 6 p.m. and includes cocktails, dinner and dancing. Tickets are $200 each, with proceeds supporting the Emerald Eagle Scholars program. Ball attendees also can purchase a table of eight for $5,000, which also entitles them to be listed as a sponsor. There will be complimentary valet parking.
