AlumNIGHTS! event

Our 40th Anniversary celebration continued with a special AlumNIGHTS Event on July 9th with lots of fun & flare!

It was a great party at our new home and outdoor terrace! We were treated to tacos and margaritas – made by a performance bartender (remember Tom Cruise in Cocktail?) – and connections with the finest civic leaders in the Louisville Metro area, including our friends from Leadership Southern Indiana.

Special thanks to PNC for sponsoring these alumni events.

Next AlumNIGHTS event will be announced in 2020.
