University of San Diego’s 2021 Founders Gala “Field of Dreams” is a party with a purpose not to be missed. Experience an evening like never before with delectable cocktails, gourmet food, auctions, and special entertainment.
This year’s event will be held outdoors on the field of the architecturally magnificent Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. Since 2004, the open-air stadium set in the heart of the city has been regarded as “The world's best ballpark in America’s Finest City.”
About 70 percent of University of San Diego students rely on some form of financial aid. Proceeds from the Founders Gala provides financial aid to University of San Diego undergraduate, graduate and law students.
The Founders Gala draws more than 500 of the region’s most prominent corporate, philanthropic, and community leaders, along with University trustees, administrators, alumni, and friends.
Sponsorship is the best way for corporations to be involved with the gala. Sponsorship packages offer robust marketing benefits with your name in lights at the ballpark. Additionally, all sponsors receive a table for ten and an invitation to the exclusive sponsor VIP reception in the Padres' team clubhouse – a perfect evening for client or employee entertainment!
