Governor's Ball

Save the date: Due to coronavirus restrictions, the 2020 Governor's Ball will not be held in Ochre Court. Stay tuned for more details.

Salve Regina, with the assistance of former Gov. J. Joseph Garrahy, established the Governor's Ball in 1977 to introduce outside support for the University and to raise scholarship funds for Salve Regina students. This act of goodwill has benefited countless students over the years. To date, the ball has raised more than $9 million toward academic assistance and has become a well-known holiday tradition in Rhode Island.

Attended by local business leaders, alumni, parents and friends, the Governor's Ball has a longstanding tradition of raising money for student scholarships. We are grateful to all participants, whose continued generosity has helped create something extraordinary.

Kindly note, this is not an assigned seated event. Guests are assigned tables, however, the number of chairs provided at each table is not equal to the number of guests per party and tables will be shared with other parties. Table acknowledgements are available at the $5,000 and above sponsorship levels.
