Board of Fellows


Susan Gaddis

Dear Friends,

The Board of Fellows was established in 1966 by a small group of Santa Clara University supporters with the help of Walter Schmidt, S.J. Through the Annual Golden Circle Theatre Party, the goal was to make some friends while raising scholarship funds for deserving Santa Clara University students.

Today, the Board has 175 members and recently celebrated the event’s 50th anniversary on January 23, 2016 at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts and the Fairmont San Jose.

Having raised over $1 million each year for the last several years, the Board is striving to make next year’s event the most successful ever. I would like to thank all of our Partner in Gold Sponsors or and all those who attended the event this year.

For additional information about the 51st Annual Theatre Party, which will be held on January 21, 2017, please contact Karrie Grasser at 408.554.6912 or

Susan Gaddis
Chair, Board of Fellows
