While the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the St. Cloud State University Foundation from hosting its annual Gala in recognition of philanthropic support, it invited donors to pull up a chair, mix themselves a special signature cocktail or mocktail, It’s Thyme Huskies, and tune in for a special video tribute from President Robbyn Wacker and students.
The annual Foundation Gala celebrates philanthropy, the greater Foundation donor community and their contributions to advancing St. Cloud State.
Alumni and friends were encouraged to Stay Home for Homecoming for all of the Homecoming 2020 events, so all events for alumni were instead presented virtually with reunions, an institutional investment outlook, a town hall for international alumni, the Homecoming 5K, the Alumni Art Show and the annual Alumni Associations Awards Recognition events happening virtually.
