Foster MBAs are not just thinking about that next case competition or how to get a great internship. We’re also racking up some serious volunteer hours chaperoning dances for the Boys & Girls Club and coaching basketball with Special Olympics athletes.
In an effort to generate funds for those great organizations, last weekend the Foster MBA Program hosted an amazingly successful auction. The event raised over $100,000! It was planned and staffed in its entirety by busy MBA students and was attended by hundreds of alumni, staff and faculty.
Some highlights of the night’s live auction:
- flying fish being thrown across the room by the famous fish mongers from Pike’s Place Market
- the heated bidding over poker night with several popular marketing professors and the Associate Dean
- hearing first hand from those who have benefited from the Boys & Girls Club and the Special Olympics
Getting all dressed up and drinking wine with our financial accounting professor wasn’t so bad either.
