Holy Cross Dining Wins Grand Prize for College’s Largest Fundraising Gala

August 1st, 2017 by Evangelia Stefanakos

The “Become More” Gala, which featured this entrée of sage-brined, herb-encrusted chicken and skillet colossal shrimp, earned Holy Cross Dining the Grand Prize in the category of catering/special events from the National Association of College and University Food Services (NACUFS) in the annual Loyola E. Horton Dining Awards.

The gala, which saw the exterior and interior of Kimball Hall transformed, served as a kickoff event for the most ambitious, comprehensive fundraising campaign in the history of the College, with the goal of raising $400 million by June 30, 2020.

The ambitious event, now being celebrated by the NACUFS, was a collaboration between Holy Cross Dining, the College’s Office of Advancement, and Educe, LLC.
