STUDENTS IN ACTION



2014 HPM Gala Students

Hospitality Students Host 11th Annual Senior Class Gala

On Saturday, April 5, students in the Falk College’s hospitality management program hosted family, friends, faculty, administrators and members of the hospitality industry for the 11th Annual Senior Class Gala. The event, which was themed “The Great Gatsby,” was held at the Goldstein Alumni and Faculty Center. The students work with faculty and staff to develop a budget, create invitations, plan the menu and fully execute a unique culinary experience for the event’s guests.

The students organizing the event held a silent auction, in conjunction with the gala. They secured donations for the silent auction, which benefitted the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York. Proceeds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation are being tallied at this time and will be reported when they are available. In the past five years, the Gala has brought in $14,783 for various charities. This year’s total will make the historical total close to $20,000.
