The Fall Gala is held at Glendenning Golf in the late Fall and allows the St. Bonaventure’s College community to participate in an evening of fun and socializing while supporting the fund raising needs of the school. Evening activities include a wonderful dinner, a dessert auction, a silent auction, a live auction, and many raffles and games. The auction items attract lots of attention and provide opportunities for experiences and acquisitions that cannot be found anywhere else. Attendees from prior galas say this is one of the high points of our fund-raising year.
