Gavilan College Through The Decades
September 7, 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Gavilan College in Gilroy kicks off its centennial year with a gala event looking back at its first 100 years on Sept. 7, 2019, on the college campus.
This warm, fun and nostalgic evening, “Gavilan Through The Decades” will be held from 5:30–9:00 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the college at 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd. in Gilroy.
We invite you to support student success by becoming a sponsor of the gala event by taking advantage of a number of sponsorship opportunities ranging from $500 to $50,000.
Sponsorships, which offer a number of benefits depending on level of sponsorship, including gala tickets, signage, promotion and advertising, social media and website promotion, and more, will go a long way to helping our students reach their career goals.
Guests at the gala will take a nostalgic and informative stroll through the decades of Gavilan’s history from the 1920s to today. Each decade will feature areas of academia highlighted with education tables, as well as food stations with themed food from each decade, wine stations, live music, photo booths, students in period costume, formal portraits, live auction, silent auction, strolling card magician in a tuxedo, and a string quartet.
The evening ends with an elegant gala highlighting the 2000s, with silent and live auction, wine and gourmet food stations, a presentation acknowledging all sponsors and dignitaries, introduction of all honorees from each decade and presenting them or their family representatives with a plaque.
