EWB-UD 2019 Anniversary Benefit Dinner
The Engineers Without Borders UD 2019 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 Marc Santos from Senator Coon’s office, who spoke about how being a part of EWB has shaped his life and career as well as the impact that engineering has across political and cultural climates.
Attendees next heard from EWB-UD’s own members. EWB-UD president Ashley Gold shared her own reflection on how her college experience has been shaped by Engineers without Borders. Leaders from our projects in Malawi, the Philippines and Local Reach Out 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 Marc Santos 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 even, 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.
