Red and Black brings in more than $400,000 for scholarships


As the curtain opened at the 2017 Red and Black, guests experienced all the energy and excitement they had come to expect from the NIU Foundation’s signature gala. As always, the evening featured the stories of the university’s talented, grateful students and the generous alumni and donors who stand behind them. And once again, the event was devoted to providing scholarship support for NIU students. This year's event inspired more than $400,000 in donations. Every dollar raised will directly support student scholarships.
