Anniversary Gala Celebration & Thank You

Celebrating 125 years of the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph & the 65th anniversary of Hilbert College

Hilbert College was honored to host the 125th/65th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, September 10.  The evening was a wonderful celebration of our beloved Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph and their 125th anniversary, and a tribute to the 65th anniversary of the founding of our College.  We are so very grateful for the extraordinary generosity and support of so many in the community who made this event possible.  Funds raised from the Gala will support our incredible Hilbert students!  We are proud to pay tribute to our outstanding lead sponsors and donors, and share photos, highlights and tribute videos.  A very special thanks to everyone who gave generously and those throughout the Hilbert community who worked so hard to make this event happen.  Mark your calendars for our next Hilbert Gala – in 2024!
