The K-State Travel and Dining Auction is the largest student fundraiser in the College of Human Ecology that is planned and executed by students. 2016 marks the 20th annual auction and for the sevenh year the auction will be produced by the Travel and Dining Auction class. This event became a class in 2009 to teach students interested in event planning how to organize and execute a major fundraising event. These Hospitality Management Program students apply for their auction positions and are chosen to be part of the class with student coordinators leading the entire event. Committees are developed to manage donations, marketing, the event decor, organization and administrative duties. This year the HMD 662 - Capstone Class for Restaurant Management will be planning and executing the food.
Proceeds from the Auction are used to support all Hospitality Management (HM) student organizations including:
- Hospitality Management Society (HMS)
- Club Managers Association of America (CMAA)
- Professional Event Management Society (PEMS)
- Hospitality Management Graduate Club
Each club allocates a portion of their funds for student financial support for traveling to regional and national food, lodging, country clubs, conferences along with other student activities. Read more about the auction here.
