BLSA hosts Vegas Night Scholarship fundraiser

The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law will host its Vegas Night Scholarship Fundraiser on Saturday, March 25, from 7 to 11 p.m. at Detroit Mercy’s Main Campus Ballroom in Detroit.

The event will include a silent auction showcase, casino-style games, raffle giveaways, music, and more.

A large part of BLSA’s mission is a strengthen minority presence at Detroit Mercy Law by sustaining a competitive pool of law students.

With this goal in mind, BLSA provides four scholarships to minority students every year: (1) 1L Denise Langford-Morris Scholarship, (2) 1L Book Scholarship, (3) 2L/3L Tuition Scholarship, and (4) 3L Bar Scholarship.

Each scholarship is awarded to offset some of the costs associated with law school and admission to the bar. Additionally, BLSA uses funding to partner with local high schools to inspire young minorities to pursue higher education, specifically in the legal field.

To raise the funds for these scholarships, BLSA hosts its annual cocktail dress and casino-style Vegas Night Scholarship Fundraiser. Funds are raised through sponsorships, ticket sales, and silent auction donations.

Tickets for this year’s Vegas Night Scholarship Fundraiser cost $30 for students and $60 for non-students. For additional information or to purchase tickets, visit and scroll down to “Upcoming Events.”
