The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) will host the Chancellor’s Scholarship Gala Saturday, April 25, at the Pine Bluff Country Club.


The black-tie event will begin with a reception and art auction at 6 p.m. followed by a dinner and program at 7 p.m.


With the theme, “A Night in ‘Nawlins,” the annual gala will continue its tradition of paying tribute to individuals who have distinguished themselves professionally and in service to the community and state, according to a news release.


Tickets for the benefit are $250 per person. Proceeds from the event will provide needed funds for scholarships for students attending UAPB. Last year’s gala provided more than $100,000 for 50+ students who needed financial assistance.
