Almost 200 SNC supporters braved frigid temperatures on Friday, December 6th to celebrate the season at Sierra Nevada College’s Holiday Gala. Party-goers at the Hyatt Regency’s Lakeside Ballroom were treated to a champagne reception, opera performance by SNC student Bryce Bullins, dinner with fine wines, a live auction including a lease for a brand new Audi, and dancing to the beat with the Jeff Leep Band.

Many thanks to our sponsors and donors who made the 2013 White Wonderland Gala possible. The evening was truly a wonderful opportunity for all of us to gather as a community and celebrate the spirit of the season as we look ahead to a new year.  Your generous support provides funding for the expansion of our academic programs and the opportunities and support that we offer our students.

Special Thanks to Co-Chairs of the 2013 Holiday Gala Janet Pahl, Robin Holman and Diane Wendel . . .
. . . and to our sponsors and donors who made this night possible.
