On Saturday February 8thth, Regis College held its Serving the World gala dinner and silent auction to bring friends together and to raise funds for Regis College. Guests enjoyed an internationally inspired gourmet dinner prepared and served family style by Jesuits, students, faculty, staff, alumni/ae and volunteers. Doctoral student Cathy Wright served as emcee for the evening and our special guest speaker was doctoral candidate Fr. Idara Otu. The evening was also highlighted by a silent auction that featured fabulous getaways, delectables to eat and drink, cultural events and items for the soul! 

Thank you to everyone who made this evening a success: our dinner guests, faculty and staff, students, alumni/ae, volunteers and silent auction donors.
