California University tops off its Family Day celebration Sept. 17 with the President’s Showcase: Hidden Treasures

Proceeds from this signature fundraising event and talent showcase benefit the Student Scholarship Fund for Academics, Arts and Athletics.

Free event parking is available in Lot 4 (River Lot).

Talent showcase

Students, parents and families are invited to attend our third annual Showcase of Stars, an evening of dazzling entertainment featuring some of Cal U’s most talented faculty, staff and students.

As she has in the past, University President Geraldine Jones will perform a musical number with Cal U students.

The talent lineup also includes performers from Cal U’s Department of Music and Theatre; comedian Derrick Knopsnyder, a Cal U alumnus; and popular bands Hear Tonight, Soulios, The Vics and the Tim Litvin Band.

Admission is free for students with valid CalCards, $10 for alumni and others. Tickets are available at the door or by calling the Steele Hall Box Office, 724-938-5943.

Fundraising reception

Before the talent showcase, join alumni and University friends at the President’s Showcase: Hidden Treasures cocktail reception in the Convocation Center lobby.

Enjoy hearty hors d’oeuvres and a chance to see some of California’s hidden treasures, including seldom-seen items drawn from the Manderino Library Archives and Special Collections.

Get a close look at the University Mace, the symbol of office carried at Commencement and Presidential Inauguration ceremonies. See the University’s remarkable collection of sheet music from the era of silent films — one of the largest collections outside Hollywood. Meet some of Cal U’s stellar students — our very own “hidden treasures”!

Dress is business casual. Each $125 ticket includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and admission to Our Showcase of Stars at 7:30 p.m.
