St. Thomas University will celebrate its 50th anniversary by recognizing the Augustinian friars whose roots trace back to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva in Havana. When Castro confiscated the schoolâ€™s land and expelled its faculty, priests, administrators and students, the Diocese of Miami invited the Augustinians to start a new college in Miami, Biscayne College. By 1984, with the establishment of the School of Law and other graduate degree programs, the School, now co-educational, became St. Thomas University and four years later became the only Archdiocesan-sponsored University in Florida. To commemorate the 50-year legacy and the exciting future that lies ahead, a Jubilee dinner-dance will bring together the university community and guests who will hear about plans and programs to be unveiled that evening. The Fernandez Family Center for Leadership and Wellness will be transformed into a fairytale festive setting, with Frances Sevilla-Sacasa and Maria Elena Villamil co-chairing a dynamic Host Committee. The gala begins with a cocktail reception at 7 p.m., followed by dinner, dancing and a special program at 8pm. Tickets are $250 per person.Â For more info contactÂ Lorena Hidalgo atÂ email@example.com.
