About Our Gala

The annual Gourmet Gala is an elegant, black-tie optional affair that offers attendees specialties from Delaware’s finest restaurateurs, brewers and vintners, who donate their culinary cuisine and time to help fill the unmet financial needs of Terry Campus students.

Supporting Student Success

Funds raised through the Gala help students in our community realize their dream of attaining a college education. Scholarship recipients pursue degrees in all fields of study, including today’s fast-growing, high-demand areas such as surgical technology, renewable energy, information security, nursing and entrepreneurship


Gala guests annually enjoy live music from a dance or party band, as well as acoustic performances in the lounge area, and additional activities over the past few years have included a silent auction, live auction, on-site artist, wine pull, photo booth, and escape room.
