Each year, DSF hosts the Annual Gala to raise money from the community to support students like you!

The highlight of our Annual Gala is the DSF Scholar & Alumni Procession, and we need YOU, to make that happen!

This year, we will have a DSF Scholar & Alumni Gala Kickoff event before the Annual Gala reception begins for participants to learn and practice networking skills. Our Annual Gala is a great opportunity to network with influential members in our community and we want to provide you the tools for successful connections during the reception and dinner portion of the event.

The DSF Scholar & Alumni Gala Kickoff will start at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 11th. Below is a basic schedule of Scholar/Alumni involvement for the evening.

4:00 PM – Opening Remarks
4:30 PM – Scholar & Alumni Procession rehearsal
4:45 PM – Networking Session and Heavy Snacks (mac ‘n cheese bar)

Every Scholar or Alumni will be seated with guests/sponsors at the event. DSF will provide each Scholar/Alumni with a $20 discount code for a Lyft ride, or cover the cost of parking at the hotel. The dress code for the evening is Business Attire.
