Infinity Events was selected to produce this year’s gala which took place on October 8, 2016. and used the beauty of the SUA campus and Soka’s core values of Hope and Peace as the inspiration for design which focused on transforming the SUA Recreation Center into a utopian landscape of a lush green field beneath a sky of blue and white clouds.
This very special evening is kicked off at SUA’s beautiful two-story, 8,000 square foot Founders Hall Art Gallery which served as the location for event registration, cocktail reception and silent auction.
Following the cocktail reception and silent auction, guests make their way to the SUA Recreation Center for dinner, live auction and entertainment.
