Benefit Dinner

EWB-UD 2018 Anniversary Benefit Dinner

The Engineers Without Borders UD 2018 benefit dinner was a memorable celebration of another year of hard work by EWB-UD’s leaders, members, mentors and community supporters. All these groups had the opportunity to meet and mingle with each other before sitting down to a delicious dinner and potent speeches about EWB-UD’s past, present and future. EWB-UD was honored to have UD’s Dean of Engineering, Babatunde Ogunnaike, reflect on his experience with EWB-UD and his hopes for the organization’s future. In addition, we were proud to host UD’s Distinguished Professor Saleem Ali, who spoke about the unifying power of engineering across diverse political and cultural climates.

Attendees next heard from EWB-UD’s own members. EWB-UD president Lia Dawson and Vice President Ashley Gold shared their own reflections on a college experience shaped by Engineers without Borders. Leaders from both of our current projects also shared their hard work, describing the accomplishments made over the past year and sharing their ambitious visions for the future of our projects.

As the evening came to a close, several lucky guests secured items in our silent auction, including many items collected during the global travels of EWB-UD members. The event came to a close with some final pictures and warm goodbyes.

A huge thank you is due to the people who made this year’s benefit dinner possible. We would like to thank Dean Ogunnaike and Professor Ali for taking the time to speak, the UD College of Engineering Staff who were our invaluable partners, the Executive Banquet and Conference Center for graciously accommodating our event, and most of all, our guests. The interest and support of community members is what makes our continued mission possible. We express our utmost gratitude to all of you.
