Program: As a high-end event held at the premier location in Seattle, the intention is that the guests have most of the evening to enjoy the company of those in the room and at the table.  There will be very little programming, with a focus on networking.  The evening will begin with a networking social at 6:00 pm, with seating for dinner by 7:00 pm.  The program will be brief with an update from Dean Anderson, and a student speaker telling a compelling story. The dining experience will be an unmatched four course food and wine paired culinary delight in a beautiful event space (click here to learn about the chef), leaving the guests eager to come back and bring their friends for next year. 

Purpose of the event:  In order to fulfill our vision and values, we need to be more engaged on the west side of the state and building relationships through this event will benefit the entire business school, especially our students. The First Annual Westside Wine and Dine is a fundraising event with a focus on networking, engagement, and fundraising.  All net proceeds will benefit the School of Business Administration Excellence fund in support of the annual initiatives to fulfill our business school’s values and vision.
