Join us at Charter Gala — Saturday, March 22, 2014 at The Westin St. Francis on Union Square in San Francisco, where we will honor our excellence in alumni achievement award recipients, including the 2014 Alumnus of the Year William Powers Jr. ’67. We will honor our alumni service award recipients at a separate celebration in the summer of 2014.
Charter Gala is the Cal Alumni Association’s signature event commemorating the founding of the University of California in 1868. Since 1873, there has been an annual gathering of the alumni body in honor of the founding. This event has transitioned from the Commencement Banquet to the Charter Day Dinner to Charter Banquet to the current Charter Gala. Since 1943, we have honored the Alumnus/a of the Year at this event. The Gala now celebrates the achievements of some of our most distinguished alumni. All proceeds from this event support The Cal Alumni Association Fund, enabling us to serve our alma mater and our alumni community.
Charter Gala will be on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at The Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.
Please note: We will honor our Alumni Service Award recipients—some of our most dedicated alumni volunteers—at a separate celebration in the summer of 2014. Details to come.
Our Alumni Events team is happy to help you.
