The 2020 No-Show Welty Gala

The Welty Gala is our annual fundraiser for the MUW Scholarship Fund. We are seeking supporters who will participate as Benefactors, Patrons, and Friends. We are especially grateful and appreciative of your support of this event as it allows The W to continue our tradition of excellence.

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a year of change. Our students and faculty are learning and teaching in new ways, and our commitment to providing outstanding education opportunities is unwavering. The Gala this year is imaginary. However, the students are real, and your support makes a difference.
