The Gala is Saint Martin’s signature student scholarship fundraising event. An annual celebration of community, food and wine, the Gala combines two important Benedictine values: hospitality and stewardship. As we gather to break bread, we support our students, whose educational dreams are made possible through scholarships funded from the proceeds of this event.
The 2023 Saint Martin’s University Gala will feature three celebrity hosts: chefs Tom Douglas, Thierry Rautureau, also known as The Chef in the Hat™, and Italian butcher Dario Cecchini. The Gala is the University’s annual major fundraising event for student scholarships. Save the date to join us on Saturday, Nov. 4, in the Marcus Pavilion on Saint Martin’s main campus in Lacey. Thanks to our generous community, the 2022 Gala raised a record breaking $3+ million for scholarships.
