Become an Inaugural Gala Sponsor

D’Youville College is honored and excited to welcome Lorrie A. Clemo, Ph.D. as its 15th president. As part of the inauguration celebration welcoming her to this role, we are delighted to invite you to join us at the upcoming Inaugural Gala which will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 5:30 PM at Kleinhans Music Hall.

This very special black tie event will serve as the exciting finale of a week-long celebration of festivities and events marking the inauguration of Dr. Clemo and the welcoming of her and her family to our college and community. Most importantly, this event will raise essential scholarship funds for the D’Youville Presidential Scholarship fund. This scholarship, known as the Michael F. and Eleaine Dillon Presidential Scholarship, provides a full tuition scholarship annually to a four-year student or five-year combined degree student who qualifies for the honor.

It would not only be our great honor to have you join us, but we sincerely hope you will consider a sponsorship of this event that celebrates our new president, our amazing D’Youville College students, and the legacy of exceptional scholarship support that we provide to them. As a friend of the college, you know how important our mission of providing academic, social, spiritual, and professional development in programs that emphasize leadership and service is to the college community and to future students.

We want to accommodate all levels of interest and are making several levels of involvement available to you, which are detailed in the attached below. The excitement and pride is building on campus as we prepare for this extraordinary Inauguration celebration, and Dr. Clemo is so proud to share the spotlight with the outstanding D’Youville student scholarship honorees. Please know that by joining us with your support, you will be a part of something truly distinctive and historic — we haven’t had a Presidential Inauguration at D’Youville in 38 years!

We hope you can join us.
