Hospitality management students pulled off the most elaborate Travel & Dining Auction yet, bringing in more than $32,000 and bolstering their resumes with experience in fund raising to catering.

The annual spring event features wine, appetizers, more than a dozen tables brimming with silent auction items and a fast-paced live auction. All auction items were donated.

Funds are used for student travel to professional conferences.
