Jewels of the Night set for April 27
Jan. 15, 2013
The 19th annual Jewels of the Night will be held Saturday, April 27, in the Walter Pyramid. The event is hosted by the 49er Athletic Club and is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Long Beach State athletic department, benefitting 49er student-athlete scholarships.
Jewels of the Night combines a night of dining on cuisine from some of Long Beach's most popular restaurants with the opportunity to bid on some great prizes in both a live auction and a silent auction. All proceeds go directly towards the financial support of more than 300 Long Beach State student-athletes.
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase some once-in-a-lifetime items and experiences during the evening. Auction items include meet-and-greets with former Dirtbags and current MLB stars, trips to memorable destinations around the world and more.
More than 20 of Long Beach's best restaurants will be on hand to serve their most famous dishes in an energetic and classy setting, complete with wine tastings, a piano bar and live entertainment.
The event will feature many of the old favorites, but will continue the fresh twist started last year that included the memorable layout inside the 18-story Walter Pyramid.
