20th Annual Gala of Stars

Last year’s Gala of Stars raised more than $500,000 in scholarship funds which made a wonderful difference in the lives of many students! More than 90% of undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid from Concordia University Irvine, and this assistance wouldn’t be possible without the support of our donors and corporate partners — people like you. Because of your generosity, we can provide extraordinary educational opportunities that prepare our young men and women to make a difference in the world and create a lasting impact on future generations.

We are pleased to invite you to the 20th Annual Gala of Stars. This benefit auction begins with a virtual silent auction on April 23rd and culminates with our in person event on April 30th.

One of the highlights of our in person event will be a special musical presentation by our talented Concordia students. The event promises to be an exciting one with a Wall of Winnings, Golden Ticket Opportunity, live auction, and more. Additionally, Albert and Deidre Pujols will be presented with the 2022 Servant Leadership Award.

We anticipate engaging more than 1,500 donors and friends as we pursue a goal of $750,000. This money will directly benefit Christian higher education and student scholarships.

I am asking you to consider underwriting a sponsorship for the 2022 Gala of Stars. Please invite your family, friends, and business associates to a great evening of entertainment and fun for a very worthwhile project. To continue the excellent work of Concordia University, your support is needed and appreciated.

On behalf of Concordia’s students, whose education will enable them to become wise, honorable, and cultivated citizens of the world, thank you for your support.
