Ticket to Wine: 12th annual Wine Tasting & Silent Auction raises over $4,800 for student scholarships

CYA-Wine-Tasting17-9500Who doesn’t love trains? Guests got to revisit their love of the rails at the B&O Railroad Museum on Friday, May 19 for the Chapter of Young Alumni’s 12th Annual Wine Tasting & Silent Auction. Members and supporters of the UMBC community came together for a night of fundraising that raised over $4,800 for student scholarships.

The night featured remarks from Leslie Walker-Wilson ’74, psychology, past president of the UMBC Alumni Association, and Courtney B. Wilson, Executive Director of the B&O Railroad Museum.

Another highlight: a special video message from Dr. Freeman Hrabowski.

They also had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items. Thanks to our local business partners, we featured packages such as Charm City Date Night and Northern MD Wine Tour.

Relive the night by visiting our Facebook album or the Pixilated photobooth gallery.
