The University of Saint Joseph gala served as a fundraiser in support of the nursing program.


Nearly 300 supporters of West Hartford’s University of Saint Joseph attended the institution’s first gala in three years at the Connecticut Convention Center on June 3, to support USJ’s Nursing programs.

To date, $1.5 million has been raised to create The Linda DelFavero Morasutti ’83, M’13, and Robert M. Lee Nursing Education and Simulation Center with another $250,000 raised for nursing scholarships to assist students.
