55th Anniversary Emerald Gala

Vanguard Music and Performing Arts (VMAPA) invites you to celebrate with us at our 55th Anniversary Emerald Gala on July 9th, 2022! Join in on the 2022 Vanguard Homecoming Weekend fun with this glamorous VIP event! This exciting evening includes a silent auction, a delicious three-course dinner, special performances, and much more. We will be joined by our friends from Blue Devils Performing Arts, who happen to be celebrating their 65th Anniversary this year! Our organizations will come together for a joint after party unlike any other, featuring a live band, dancing, and many memories to be made.

This year marks not only our return to the field, but also The Santa Clara Vanguard Cadet’s return to their national tour. We are incredibly excited to announce the proceeds from this Gala will support the purchase of a new food truck for the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets! Now more than ever, it is essential that we have the best possible equipment and resources to support the wellbeing of our young performers. A new food truck will ensure that we can provide SCVC members with fresh, healthy meals to fuel championship level performance regardless of where they are on tour. 

Individual tickets for the Gala are $200. If you are interested in reserving a table or if you have other questions regarding this event, please contact Claire King, Business Development Specialist at cking@scvanguard.org. See below for ticketing and table package info. We can’t wait to see you there!
