Give Back Gala 2020
The third annual Give Back Gala on July 17, 2020 was held as a virtual event and simulcast, with J.C. Watts, Jr. as the keynote speaker. Due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, the Gala had custom pre-event content for our online audience, including student and alumni stories and a live master of ceremonies. Watts spoke from campus to a small, in-person audience, which was simulcast for virtual viewers. Nearly $145,000 was raised to support student scholarships and areas of greatest need.
