Campaign Kicks Off at St. Louis Gala

October 6, 2012 — St. Louis

​On October 6, 2012, more than 1,200 alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends attended a gala dinner at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel to publicly launch Leading Together: The Campaign for Washington University, a $2.2 billion* multiyear initiative. Guests—some from as far away as London and Shanghai—enjoyed an evening of celebration and surprises, and followed Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton in raising their glasses to “a new era, and continuing this great dream we call Washington University.”

We invite you to enjoy the slide show below—and to make your contribution to this historic university effort.

*Goal was increased to $2.5 billion in January 2016.
