    Gala Night

    Chapman Celebrates

    November 5, 2016

» Gala Night

This is a momentous year for Chapman’s signature event, American Celebration, as it will move to its new home in the spectacular Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts. Along with a new venue, our trademark gala marks its 35th anniversary under a new name. In order to strengthen Chapman University’s institutional brand, moving forward the event will officially become known as Chapman Celebrates.

Chapman Celebrates remains as scholarship driven as ever. The foundation of this spectacular evening is raising awareness of Chapman University and supporting scholarship funds for deserving students who otherwise might not be able to get a world class education.

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception on the lush lawn of the Bette and Wylie Aitken Arts Plaza followed by a spectacular performance presented by students from the College of Performing Arts Immediately following the stage production, a lavish dinner in a beautiful setting will include live music and dancing.

Please join us on Saturday, November 5, 2016 as we usher in a new and exciting Chapman Celebrates tradition in the Musco Center for the Arts.

For more information on Gala Night, Contact Tami R. Thompson, Director of External Relations (714) 744-7031 or tthompso@chapman.edu
