Don your most striking formal attire for “A Starlit Night” supporting scholarships which will open opportunities of a lifetime for Silver Lake College students. (Black-tie optional)
Silver Lake College invites you to walk the red carpet and join in the celebration of our students—our brightest stars.

You’ll enjoy a five-course gourmet meal by Courthouse Pub, each paired with a magnificent hand-selected wine. You’ll hear from several students who will share their Silver Lake College experiences, and you’ll see a stellar performance by our talented music students. Justin Nickels, mayor of the City of Manitowoc and current Silver Lake College student, will emcee the program.
