Nestled along the banks of Fisk Lake in East Grand Rapids sits the Lakewood Estate, a sprawling estate that played host to Aquinas College’s welcome celebration for Dr. Juan Olivarez hosted by Circle Theatre.
Alumni, staff, and supporters donned Gala-worthy attire and descended on the Lakewood Estate to welcome Aquinas College’s seventh president in 125 years. Circle Theatre, celebrating what will be their sixtieth seasons of performance, brought with them musical selections from the upcoming 2012 season. They also played host to a toast to Dr. Olivarez and his wife Mary, as well as silent and live auctions to raise support dollars for the Circle Theatre.
The event was sponsored by Aquinas College, The Wege Foundation, Lacks Enterprises Inc, and Meijer Inc. and was filled with food, music, laughter, and dancing. Stiletto Sweets even managed to ensure everyone went home with their very own sweet treat at the end of the night.
The Stellafly team was happy to be in attendance – not just for the fun and chances to bid on some spectacular packages, but to welcome back a distinguished alumnus as the President of an outstanding institution right here in Grand Rapids. Welcome back, Dr. Olivarez.
