Saint Louis University

Father Biondi Gala | May 4, 2013


Since 1987, President Lawrence Biondi, S.J. has led Saint Louis University through a remarkable era of progress.

His visionary leadership has not only transformed SLU, but also made a major impact on the entire St. Louis Metropolitan Region.

This spring, the St. Louis community will come together on May 4th at Chaifetz Arena to honor the contributions of Father Biondi and the achievements of SLU during his tenure. The black-tie event will be co-chaired by notable St. Louisans Peggy Ritter and Sam Fox.

Proceeds from the 25th Anniversary Gala will be used to fund scholarships and innovative academic initiatives that will directly benefit Saint Louis University students. By supporting scholarships and academic programs, donors not only honor Father Biondi's 25 years of leadership at SLU, but also provide opportunities for tomorrow's leaders by helping prepare compassionate and capable professionals who are ready to take on the world's challenges.

Individual tickets are $1,000 and tables of 10 may be purchased for $10,000. Individual and corporate sponsorships are available as well.

Thank you in advance for supporting Saint Louis University’s Catholic, Jesuit mission of education, research, health care and service.
