The Saint Vincent College Easter Ball for alumni, guests and friends of Saint Vincent College, Preparatory School and Seminary will be held on Saturday, April 6 at the Lexus Club at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

The formal event, which has revived the tradition of the spring ball that raised scholarship funds from the late 1940s and into the 1960s, is sponsored by the Saint Vincent Alumni Council in conjunction with the Alumni Office. Walter J. Nalducci, C’90, and Daniel W. Kunz, C’99, are co-chairs of the event.

Proceeds from the ball benefit the Father Gilbert J. Burke, O.S.B. Alumni Scholarship Fund which was established in 2001 to provide scholarship support to full-time students with academic merit and financial need. The scholarship fund was established to heighten student interest in alumni activities in order to ensure that Saint Vincent remains an important part of the lives of students after graduation and to provide an example of philanthropy that current students may one day follow. More than $50,000 has been raised for student scholarships in the past decade.

The Easter Ball will feature an elegant buffet with carving stations, selections from a variety of cuisines as well as a cash bar. There will also be silent auction and Bearcat auction offering a wide variety of specialty gift items including sports memorabilia and special Saint Vincent items. Live music for dancing will be provided by the band, Dr. Zoot. Dress for the Easter Ball is semi-formal with black tie optional for men. The cost to attend is $135 a person.

The Easter Ball committee includes Jim Bendel, C’60, Joseph E. Biss, C’60, Celine R. Brudnok, C’90, William A. Casey, C’90, Jack Cherubini, C’75, MaryAnn Cherubini, C’99, J.

Historically, the Easter Ball, also known as the Student Benefit Dance, featured alumni and their spouses, formally attired and dancing to the music of a renowned local orchestra. Seniors in tuxedos and their dates in formal gowns were also invited to this special event which often was held at different sites in Pittsburgh.
