Benefit Dinner

EWB-UD 10th Anniversary Benefit Dinner

The 2017 benefit dinner was a fantastic capstone to the 10th year of EWB-UD’s efforts to make a difference here and around the world. Project managers and other leaders spoke about EWB-UD’s ongoing projects in the Philippines, Malawi, and in the local community, showcasing the results of hard work and sacrifice by our members, mentors and sponsors. Over plates of delicious dishes inspired by the cuisine of our partner communities, attendees were able to engage with the people behind EWB-UD’s successes, along with other members of the community that share their interest in EWB.

Members and guests alike were moved by speeches from EWB-USA founder Bernard Amadei, College of Engineering Dean Babatunde A Ogunnaike, and our president, Sarah Hartman. In addition, a silent auction boasted a variety of interesting items, from EWB-UD paraphernalia to authentic clothes, implements, and other items produced in Malawi, the Philippines, and elsewhere around the world.

The event was also an opportunity to celebrate the creation of the Dr. Steve Dentel EWB Endowment, in honor of the late founder of EWB-UD. With an extremely generous donation of $100,000 over the next decade from the Post-Dentel family, the endowment will be able to continue in the spirit of Dr. Dentel and support the future aspirations of EWB-UD and the students at the University of Delaware.

A huge thank you is due to all the speakers, guests and university faculty and staff who participated in this year’s benefit dinner. The event would have not been possible without support from the College of Engineering, the University, generous donors of the auction items, and of course, our guests.
