2015 11th Annual Gala
The Annual Gala is the premier fundraising event for California State University 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. 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.
This year's Annual Gala will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, CA.
This year's theme is Film Noir, so we invite guests to dress in black tie, formal maritime, or in 40's and 50's Classic Hollywood (style examples 1, 2, 3, 4).
