Nearly 200 alumni and friends enjoyed a night of wine, food and an incredible view of the Baltimore skyline at the 7th Annual Wine Tasting at the Legg Mason Tower in Harbor East April 27. The Chapter of Young Alumni hosted the event.

The night — which included a silent auction, raffles, and a showing of artwork by current students — raised $3,648 for student scholarships, said Cindy Greenwood, Alumni Programming Coordinator.

“It’s so nice to be able to have such a beautiful event, and to know that you’re helping students at the same time,” she said. “We were really pleased with the whole thing.”

The silent auction brought in a wide selection of prizes, including a Charm City Cakes package, an Annapolis inn getaway and a lunch with UMBC president Freeman A. Hrabowski, III.

The evening also brought with it a spot of romance, as 2005 alumnus Dominick Campbell, computer science, proposed to his girlfriend, Allison Fisher, high above the sparkling city. (She said yes!)
