Setting Sail at the Blue & White Gala


Dozens of Trinity friends and alumni recently gathered aboard the Odyssey II for the first-ever Blue & White Gala, celebrating the College’s connection to the world-class city of Chicago and taking in the spectacular skyline.

Pres. Kurt and Leah Dykstra greeted the guests, who boarded the yacht at Navy Pier on May 20. The attendees, which included multiple Trinity vice presidents and members of the Board of Trustees, enjoyed dinner and strolled the Sapphire deck as the yacht toured the breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline. As part of the spirit of the festivities, many guests came decked out in blue and white attire.

The event raised more than $62,000 for The Trinity Fund, an operational fund for the College that supplements the school’s income from tuition. If you were unable to attend but would still like to support the College’s students with a gift to The Trinity Fund, visit

And if you missed all the fun at this year’s Blue & White Gala, there are plans to host future events that showcase the incomparable architecture and natural beauty of the Windy City.
