Selkirk College Gala 2017 Inspires

Annual Event Helps Bolster Student Awards


The annual Selkirk College Gala took place at Mary Hall on Nelson’s Tenth Street Campus on Saturday night with more than 200 guests taking in a showcase of student talent.

With the theme “Inspiring Dreams,” Gala 2017 pointed a spotlight at students in the Professional Cook Training Program, Resort & Hotel Management Program and the Contemporary Music & Technology Program. Donors and community supporters were treated to a delicious three-course meal and pre-dinner canapes, a beautifully decorated venue and excellent service, along with a dazzling 50-minute music performance.

Funds raised at Saturday’s Gala 2017 totaled more than $15,000.
