A Night of Stars

College Celebrates Distinguished Alumni with Unforgettable Night

Moravian College hosted its inaugural “A Night of Stars,” billed as a blend between the Academy Awards and a wedding reception with a great band, on April 26. The event offered attendees an evening of dancing with the always terrific Philadelphia Funk Authority, as well as an introduction to several of the College’s shining stars. 

With a red carpet entrance complete with paparazzi, Moravian took over the ArtsQuest Center’s Musikfest Café in Bethlehem for an unforgettable night, recognizing 17 alumni who have shined in their respective communities. Additionally, the event benefited the College’s student financial aid.

“There are so many Moravian alumni who have distinguished themselves in their community, and A Night of Stars allowed us an opportunity to recognize some of those individuals,” explained Gary Carney, vice president of institutional advancement. “This event was designed to be a fun-filled night for everyone who attended – Greyhound or not – and I really think we achieved our goal. We are already looking forward to next year’s A Night of Stars!
