The Candlelight Ball

Austin Peay State University’s 33rd Annual Candlelight Ball was held at the Hilton Nashville Downtown on March 11th. What is arguably the most highly anticipated event event held each year, it hosts nearly 400 guests, all dressing for the occasion in classy tuxedos and lavish ball gowns for a night of cocktails, dinner, and dancing. This yearly event, which is produced by Austin Peay, is held to raise funds for scholarships that assist students in furthering their education. Each year two attendees at the event are presented awards for their contributions to the community and their dedication to helping the students of APSU.
