Savannah State University’s 2012 Presidential Scholarship Gala will be held at 7 p.m., Saturday, May 5, in the new Student Union on the SSU campus. Net proceeds from the university’s premier fundraiser and acclaimed community event will benefit the Presidential Scholarship Endowment, which provides much-needed scholarship money to deserving students.
This year’s gala theme, “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow — We Are Rising,” reflects upon the university’s rich past, celebrates its exciting present and envisions what tomorrow will bring. Guests at the black-tie affair will enter via the “orange carpet” and enjoy a silent auction and entertainment by notable musical guests. There will also be a special show indicative of the gala theme featuring university faculty, staff and students.
Individual seats are $150, couples are $250 and reserved tables start at $2,500. Tables can also be purchased for $1,000 and reserved for SSU students to attend the gala. In addition, corporate sponsorship opportunities and program booklet advertising opportunities are still available. To reserve seats and tables online, visit give.savannahstate.edu/gala.
