Trine Gala Raises Nearly $800K for Scholarships
By Sheila McCrea

Hundreds gathered for the 15th annual event on Saturday, February 10th, just a day after snow and ice forced the cancellation of classes on main campus. This years annual Trine University Gala raised more than $790,000 for student scholarships, which is another record amount for the school.

Those in attendance heard about the impact their contributions have on Trine University students, who receive more than $27 million each year in institutional aid.

State Senator Dennis Kruse, a member of the university Board of Trustees, and his son Matthew Kruse conducted the live auctions. Among the highlights was a luxury six-day, six night photo safari trip to South Africa for two that raised $5,000.

For the third year, one of those attendance sacrificed a tie for the cause. This time, Barry Trine, president of Vestil Manufacturing Corp. and son of university namesakes Drs. Ralph and Sheri Trine, was led around by Turner as other guests bid on his hat and tie. The ensemble eventually sold for $1,100.
