Grande Ball

Frances ParralesThe Thomas Edison State University Foundation held its 27th Annual Grande Ball on October 13, 2018 at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. It was a wonderful evening of celebration and purpose as Dr. Merodie A. Hancock, fourth President of Thomas Edison State University, was honored.

The event raised more than $140,000 for the University. During the evening’s program, Dr. Hancock shared her deep commitment to serving adult students. In addition, Frances Parrales, BA ‘12, MA ’15 shared her journey as a TESU student who earned two degrees and who now supports the University she credits with giving her so much. Frances invited guests to contribute to the TESU Scholarship Fund, as she does, to support future students with their journey.

The Thomas Edison State University Foundation is grateful to the 2018 Gala Committee and all the generous sponsors, program advertisers, attendees, Wine Cellar and TESU Student Scholarship donors who supported the event and helped make it a success!
