Cal State San Marcos holds annual gala
Cal State University San Marcos (CSUSM) held its 2013 annual gala “Mad About CSUSM” on June 9. Attended by 300 guests, the event raised $95,000 for student scholarships, innovative research, student programming and faculty development.
Featuring a ’60s theme based on the popular AMC series Mad Men, Kellogg Plaza was bedecked with a black and white checkered dance floor while buildings were lit up in lights. Festive tables were draped with red satin tablecloths with lush white flowers in a martini glass shaped vase. The guests enjoyed posing in a photo booth inspired by Don Draper’s office while the band “The Heroes” played hits.
Highlights of the night included a silent and live auction, an inspirational video showcasing three student scholarship recipients and a live “Raise the Paddle for Scholarships” auction. Photos courtesy of CSUSM
