Presidential Gala

The Presidential Gala is an elegant evening of socializing, dining and engaging in live and silent auctions.  The evening begins with a cocktail reception featuring delectable appetizers and full bar service.  The Singing Blue provides entertainment while guests peruse the silent auction tables.  A three course, gourmet dinner is then served, followed by a live auction and “Raise the Paddle” to Sponsor-a-Knight.
 
This premier social event is the largest fundraiser hosted by St. Francis each year with all proceeds benefiting student scholarships and tuition assistance.  Each year, over 60% of our student body receives scholarships or financial assistance, and the need continues to grow.
