One Night, One Community, one epic event: 2022 gala & Auction

At our Gala & Auction on May 19, we gathered to celebrate individuals who have made an immeasurable and lasting impact on us all:

Hanita Walia P’16, P’22, President of the Board of Trustees, honored for her strong and dedicated leadership in this role over the past six years and as a Trustee for the past 12 years, and our Medical and Dental Advisory Committee, honored for their ongoing guidance in ensuring the safety of our students, faculty, and staff since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.

If you’ve not made your gala gift, there is still time to support our only fundraising event of the year by visiting our 2022 Gala and Auction website.

Our event journal celebrates our honorees and recognizes our sponsors.
