Just two weeks ago, we celebrated two decades of Black Tie Dinner excellence. When this team of incredible students started planning in August, our vision for the dinner was to remember the past and look towards the future. Keeping the ambiance light and fresh, we wanted to create a memorable evening for our guests. Our volunteers once again amazed us with their incredible skill sets and how they handled themselves. Even during the campus wide black out, they rose to the challenge and continued to provide impeccable service. Though this unexpected event occurred, it was a great learning opportunity for our students to grow and refine their skills. We are so grateful for the continued support from our many donors and guests and their generous contributions. This year through our mobile bidding app for our silent auction, we raised $8,300. We are so excited to split the proceeds between Food Finders Backpack Program and our student endowments! As some will be continuing their journey with Black Tie and others are starting a new adventure, we look forward to serving you all again on April 6th, 2019 for the 21st Annual Black Tie Dinner. Until then, we wish you a safe and successful year!
