Springfield, MA— Bay Path University has announced its 4th Annual President’s Gala, which will take place on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel. While the Gala will continue its tradition of raising funds for student scholarships, the 2020 event will also celebrate the legacy of Bay Path President Dr. Carol A. Leary, who will be retiring in June 2020 after 25 years of serving as president. This event will pay tribute to the work both Carol and Noel Leary have contributed to our community, and is sure to be an evening to remember. 

 “For 25 years, the Learys have been active and generous members of the Pioneer Valley community. They have admirably contributed to area nonprofits and changed many lives. This is an opportunity to show support, honor them, share in their memories, and raise crucial scholarship funds to support our students,” said Allison Gearing-Kalill, Bay Path University’s Vice President for Development and Planned Giving.

 Mark your calendars now and get your dancing shoes ready for an evening that features a formal dinner, engaging live entertainment, and a fabulous auction. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit
