A Royal AffairThe Gustie Gala

What an amazing night of fun and festivities with the Gustavus family at A Royal Affair!

On November 12, 2022 at the JW Marriott, Gusties filled the room with 600 people who dusted off their crown to attend this gala.

The biennial fundraiser raised over $660,000 to support access to learning for the talented students and faculty at Gustavus Adolphus College!

The event raises money for scholarships for first-generation college students with high academic ability and high economic need and the Gustavus Library Associates Endowment Fund. The event is hosted by the Friends of the Library-Gustavus Library Associates (GLA) and Gustavus Adolphus College.
