THANK YOU!

On Feb. 11, more than 400 Fairbanks community members came together to support UAF and its students at the 2017 Blue and Gold Gala. The sold-out, 1920s-themed event attracted friends of the university and featured a blend of cultures and times with the music of Inuit soul group Pamyua.

We were pleased to recognize our distinguished faculty, alumni and philanthropists and to support UAF students through the Centennial Scholarships and Fellowships Initiative. Thanks to the generous commitment of the individuals in attendance and our sponsors, we raised more than $121,000!

If you were unable to attend but would still like to contribute to support students through the Centennial Scholarships and Fellowships Initiative, you can do so here. If you would like to make a gift via your cellphone, please text the word GALA to 41444.

Photos from the evening can be viewed here, Red Carpet photos and links to the video and program from the evening are shared below.
