Matt Wesly, Bethany Hernandez, and James Rodriguez, members of  Lost & Found, entertain the audience at the 2013 An Evening with Our Stars.

Music, comedy, food, chemistry - the Adams State University Foundation "Evening with Our Stars" event will fundraise money for student scholarships.

The gala affair begins at 5 p.m. with an open bar cocktail hour followed at 6 p.m. with dinner, performances, and a dessert auction, on Friday, April 4, at the Inn of the Rio Grande.

This year performances include 68 West, Adams State's a cappella group; Lost & Found, Adams State's improv comedy troupe; and a chemistry magic show by the campus chemistry club.

According to Duane Bussey '82, president of the ASU Foundation Board of Directors, along with raising money for scholarships, the event showcases talented university students.

"The Foundation Board is excited to host an evening filled with great entertainment, good food and a chance to raise scholarship money for San Luis Valley students attending ASU," Bussey said. "It will also be a great opportunity to hear from President David Svaldi for an update on the state of ASU."

The cost of tickets is $50. Corporate tables seating eight are also available. Eighty percent of net proceeds will provide scholarship to students from the San Luis Valley.
