Gala of the Stars
The annual Gala of Stars is an evening of outstanding entertainment, gourmet dining, exciting auction items, and award presentations to support Concordia University's Scholarship Fund. Through special events and a number of friend-raising activities, the Friends of Concordia University help make it possible for young men and women to receive a Christian education by providing vitally needed scholarship support as well as funds for other campus programs. Please visit the Gala's website for more information.
