On the evening of October 22, 2016, the men of the Southern Gateway Chorus gathered with many friends, family, and fans for the Gateway Gala. The event featured dinner, great entertainment, and silent and live auction fund-raisers. Over 200 guests enjoyed entertainment by The Roaring 20’s, The Crew, and The Reen Family, musical ensembles that feature Gateway members. The final performance of the evening was provided by the full Southern Gateway Chorus.
The auction was hosted by former WLW radio personality Gary Burbank, who brought his unique touch of humor to the event, and Tom Hambly of Skyline Auctioneers, who kept the lively auction going.
