Norfolk State University will host the 2023 President’s Gala at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 15, 2023 on the campus in Joseph G. Echols Memorial Hall. Doors will open to the public at 6:30 p.m.

The 2023 President’s Gala will be hosted by world-renowned actress, director and Tony Award Winner Phylicia Rashad. This black-tie dinner program promises to be a night full of elegance, great music and excitement as we pay homage to our great university and its supporters. 

One of the highlights of the evening will be the induction of individuals into the Lyman Beecher Brooks Society. This is the third induction into our premier giving society which recognizes individuals whose lifetime giving is $100,000 or greater. This year, 17 individuals will be inducted into the Lyman Beecher Brooks Society.
