  • 28th Annual Seattle University Gala raises more than $760,000 for student scholarships

     Fr. Steve, Sinegals and Betty WoodsOctober 29th was a big night for Seattle University, as over 840 Seattle U alumni, friends, parents and community leaders joined together at the Westin, raising more than $760,000 to directly support student scholarships. Now in its 28th year, the Gala boasts exquisite dining and entertainment, and this year was no exception: the live music of swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy had everyone on their feet dancing, bringing a fun 1940s feeling to the ballroom.

    At this year’s gala, the university proudly presented its most prestigious honor, the St. Ignatius Medal, to Jim and Janet Sinegal for their outstanding leadership, service and community support. Read more about the Sinegals’ leadership as well as past St. Ignatius Medal recipients here

    Seattle U would like to thank Maureen Benoliel, ’71, and her husband Joel for serving as this year’s Gala Chairs. The 2011 Gala Chairs, sponsors and donors are to be commended for their generous commitment to SU’s bright minds of tomorrow.
