Among the many aspects of life at Morehead State University that had to change this year, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of the Annual Spring Gala, which was scheduled to take place this past April.   

The Annual Spring Gala has been a tradition on Morehead State University’s campus since 1993. This year would have marked the 27th consecutive year of this incredible event. While it couldn’t be held in person, we invite you to join us in a virtual celebration.  

MSU is already looking ahead to next year – the gala theme will be “Back on Broadway” on Saturday, April 24, 2020. It will feature songs from popular Broadway musicals like “Chicago,” “Hamilton,” “Cabaret,” “Cats,” “A Chorus Line,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Grease” and “The Lion King,” featuring faculty, staff and students from the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance. 

While the gala won’t take place until next year, friends of MSU who continue to be event sponsors year after year by can continue in the fundraising tradition.  

The gala is MSU’s biggest fundraiser of the year, raising over $100,000 annually. To support our students in their time of need, MSU has created the Eagle’s NEST Fund – Needs for Eagle Support in Trying Times. All gifts contributed in lieu of this year’s gala support this important fund.  

Please visit to make your donation and show your support for current and future Eagles.
