After a Covid-induced break in 2020, the Sultana Education Foundation’s Annual Gala is back for 2021. Sultana’s Gala is a party with a mission – raising $100,000+ each year to support the Foundation’s work. You can look forward to world-class entertainment, a crowd of 400+, fantastic food/drink, and a unparalleled waterfront venue.
In addition to underwriting scholarships, Sultana’s 2021 Gala will raise funds to support the build-out of the Foundation’s new Lawrence Wetlands Preserve in Chestertown. Scheduled to open in early 2023, the 8.5-acre Preserve will be a powerful new tool to help students better understand the connection between land use and the Chesapeake Bay.
Hudson Horns is a musical collective made up of the best professionally trained musicians on the Eastern Seaboard and are considered among the hottest talent coming out of NYC. They have collaborated with the leading artists in multiple musical genres and bring incredible skill and passion to their shows. A Hudson Horns celebration features music for everyone, ranging from contemporary to the classic sounds of Motown and Big Band Swing.
The Sultana Education Foundation is proud to have its Annual Gala return to Clovelly Nurseries, an 800-acre waterfront farm just south of Chestertown. With a hilltop venue that provides a panoramic view of the Chester River, we couldn’t think of a better location for our biggest party of the year.
