On Saturday, March 9, 2013 the California Maritime Academy's will welcome over 320 guests to celebrate our "Tradition of Excellence" during our 9th Annual Gala. Alumnus Kim Estes '78E is joining us as our special guest emcee. We greatly appreciate the generosity and support of all of our sponsors.
Our celebration is set to begin at 5:30 p.m.
The Annual Gala is the premier fundraising event for The California Maritime Academy and its cadets, and has grown to become the second largest fund-raising and networking event for the maritime industry on the West Coast. In addition to an evening of great food and camaraderie, this black-tie event presents a wonderful opportunity for guests to network with alumni, parents and industry colleagues, while raising scholarship support for today's generation of cadets.
The 2012 Gala raised more than $145,000 for scholarships and educational programs for the Academy and we hope to significantly increase scholarship support for new and currently enrolled cadets in 2013. We know we can do that with your help!
