Foundation Gala

Thank you to all our donors, sponsors and supporters,
because of you we raised over $120,000 at Gala 2020, A Walk Through Time


Your support for the fund a need campaign successfully saw our Nursing program obtain a lifesaving, high-fidelity infant mannequin that will help outfit simulation labs in TRU’s Nursing and Population Health building.

As we endeavor to continue offering Foundation events in support of our students and donors we are navigating the recent changes due to COVID-19 and it’s effects of in person events.  As such we are looking at new and adapted ways of offering you, our donors, and supporters safe and enjoyable opportunities to partake in future events.

Please check back for future event information; all prior event participants will receive email notifications when Gala 2021 information is available.
