I hope you will join us!

Now marking our fifth celebration, the President’s Gala brings together hundreds of business and community leaders to celebrate the unique role that Bay Path University continues to play as a leading institution of higher learning. Over its 125-year history, Bay Path has remained laser-focused on educating and empowering our present and future workforce.

Understanding the vital role that our students play in addressing the challenges facing our healthcare system, we are dedicating this year’s Gala to our School of Health and Natural Sciences. Our 2024 Gala carries the theme of “Breaking Through” and will feature our exciting initiatives in healthcare.

I would like to invite you to join us for what will be an inspirational evening, complete with dinner and dancing. This sponsorship brochure explains several options for featuring you and your company or business in our event.
