On Mar. 8, WCU’s Latino American Student Organization (LASO) held their 9th Annual Gala of Hope in Sykes Ballrooms from 7 p.m. to midnight.

The Gala of Hope proceeds were donated to make a scholarship for a high school DREAM ACT recipient to attend college. Fellow West Chester students, alumni, and also non-WCU students came in their best outfit to enjoy the night of dancing, food, and Spanish style music. Highlights of the evening included senior students from the Mastery Charter School of Philadelphia performing an astounding high energy dance routine, as well as alumni and current West Chester students reuniting with friends.

Charles Dickens once said, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”  If the attendees of the Gala of Hope kept this in mind, it was surely a night to remember.
