Bright Nights Sponsor

Western New England University has been announced as the sponsor of the 2023 City of Bright Nights Ball, the largest annual fundraiser organized by non-profit organization, the Spirit of Springfield. The event, which features the theme “Gilded Glamour,” will bring together business and community leaders of greater Springfield to celebrate and support the mission of the Spirit of Springfield with a night of gourmet dishes, auctions, and dancing on November 11. The Spirit of Springfield aims to promote unity and civic pride in the Springfield community. Western New England University and its students have maintained active involvement in the event since its inception in 1996.

“It is an exciting time for the city of Springfield, it is an exciting time for Western New England University. The stars have aligned and as we enter into our second century at WNE, this is a great opportunity for all of us to come together for a better community,” President Johnson explained.
