|Staff Senate thanks all who helped with the Emerald and Ice Gala|
Staff Senate would like to thank the UND campus community for its participation in the Emerald and Ice Gala held on Feb. 6. Attendees, including President and First Lady Kelley, reported having a wonderful time with an evening filled with music, dancing, laughter, good conversation and a bit of "gambling." The Downtown Horns provided "phenomenal" music and the food was described as "fantastic." Over 200 tickets were sold, and as a result of the silent auction, enough money was raised to provide five new scholarships to students. Individuals had the opportunity to use their "gambling" money to bid on over 80 prizes, which were donated by individuals across the campus. As a result of the Gala's success, Staff Senate is already planning next year's event. So, once again, thank you to all who participated by donating, assisting, attending or buying tickets.
