Ferris Foundation for Excellence Benefit

New Momentum

After pausing for 2020, the Ferris Foundation for Excellence Benefit Gala returned on October 29, 2021. It was a special evening that helped move our university, our community, and our world forward with new momentum.

We look forward to seeing you again next year.
