Governor's Ball

Salve Regina University's 44th Annual Governor's Ball 
Coming to your living room on December 5!

Find your favorite dancing partner (gowns and tuxedos optional; you can even wear your blue jeans or pajamas), pour a glass of holiday cheer and join us as we keep the tradition going!

The Governor’s Ball has been the kick-off for Rhode Island’s holiday season for the past 43 years and, though this year you can kick off your shoes at home to dance the night away, we are not going to let anything stop this enduring tradition that has become a symbol of generosity and hope.

While we will not be together in Ochre Court on December 5, we will gather in spirit and festive celebration of your support for Salve students in need. Join us as we celebrate the generosity of Salve Regina alumni, parents, and friends and the dreams that their gifts help to make come true.

When you make your gift, you will become a part of a special evening highlighting the very best of Salve—our wonderful students who are tomorrow’s leaders. As a special thanks, we will send a Governor’s Ball Celebration Kit to donors at the Ruby and Sapphire levels.

Thank you for your continued generosity and all that you do for Salve’s students.

A link will be sent to donors prior to the 8 p.m. start of the Ball.

Join us on Facebook as we ramp up the celebration, sharing special memories and making new ones.
