The Saint Martin's Gala is the University's major fundraising event for student scholarships. Over the years, the black tie affair has grown to be the premier culinary event in the South Sound, featuring a live auction, a five-course gourmet dinner and cooking demonstrations by such renowned chefs as Ming Tsai and Lidia Bastianich. All proceeds from the Saint Martin's Gala directly support student scholarships.
