Centennial Gala

A grand finale to 100 years

More than 500 alumnae, faculty, staff, students, donors and friends embraced the evening's theme, "So let your light shine," during the Saint Ben's Centennial Gala on April 26, at The Depot in downtown Minneapolis. The event included performances, recognition, fellowship and dancing and celebrated a century of illuminating the world through education, service and leadership. Twenty-seven sponsors supported the Gala, with proceeds going to student scholarships. This support ensures that future generations of Saint Ben's students will light the way for our second century.  

Thanks to our sponsors, guests and vendors for making this a memorable, one-of-a-kind event!
