Gala Recap

The Jessup Gala was an incredible evening where alumni were honored at a high level. Over 300 were in attendance and over $150,000 came in for student scholarships! The event took place at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Sacramento and was the first Gala in Jessup history to take place off campus. Downtown was a fitting scene as the the theme was "A Heart for the City."
