The American Cancer Society is thrilled to welcome you to Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus for The Cancer Gala 2018 on Saturday, October 6. The beautiful River Campus exquisitely joins the rich history of Cape Girardeau with modern facilities that serve students of Southeast Missouri State University and the area.

The Cancer Gala 2018 — Held at the River Campus

Opening in the Fall of 2007, the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts or the River Campus incorporate two buildings: the Seminary Building and the Cultural Arts Center. These buildings contain the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall, the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum, the John and Betty Glenn Convocation Center, the Wendy Kurka Rust Flexible Theatre, the Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall, and the River Campus Art Gallery. It is home to the departments of Art, Music, Theater and Dance. The River Campus hosts many performance series: the Touring Series, the Theater and Dance Series, the Symphony Series, the Southeast Ensemble Series, the Jazz Series, the Faculty Recital Series and Sundays at Three chamber music Series. The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum and Art Gallery features rotating touring exhibitions.

About Gala

With every dollar raised during the Gala, you’ll be helping the American Cancer Society be there for those affected every year by cancer in our community; including those who are currently dealing with a cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether because of education and risk reduction.

Attendees will enjoy the fantastic views of the Mississippi River and can tour the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum.
