Auction & Gala
Every spring, SPEA holds the Annual Auction and Gala to raise money for SPEA graduate students’ professional development grants and unpaid or minimally paid internships. Gala guests are invited to enjoy a full cash bar, appetizers, and music while considering an array of donated items for bid in the silent or live auction. Items auctioned off in the past have ranged from original artwork, dinner packages, autographed sports memorabilia, hand crafted jewelry and more. The event is entirely student organized and thus is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in the SPEA community!
