Founders Day 2019 gala


Individual tickets and tables are still available for the 2019 Founders Day banquet on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. in the Little America Hotel Grand Ballroom. You can make a reservation here.

Commemorating the founding of the University of Utah in 1850, the Alumni Association will celebrate four distinguished alumni and one honorary alumna during the evening.

Every year, the Alumni Association recognizes alumni and honorary alumni who have distinguished themselves professionally, served local and national communities, and supported the U in its missions. The annual distinguished and honorary alumni awards, along with honorary degrees, are among the highest honors awarded by the University of Utah. The banquet is a wonderful way to celebrate and show support for individuals who have raised the profile of the university through their accomplishments and generosity.

Colleges and departments can purchase tables or individual tickets. Reserve a table today have your staff treat your alums and/or donors to a night of meeting new friends, building camaraderie and reconnecting with old friends by celebrating the 2019 distinguished and honorary alumni award recipients. Make your reservation by Friday, Feb. 15, 2019.
