CSM’s Electrifying Evening with Arts & Sciences

CSM’s gala event

Gala Event in New Building Supports Scholarships

The College of Southern Maryland’s new building on the Prince Frederick Campus, designed for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, will host community members, local dignitaries, donors, sponsors and other partners at An Electrifying Evening with the Arts and Sciences, Oct. 19, to raise funds for scholarships in support of local students pursuing their educational goals.

The gala will feature a full schedule including music and dancing with Jennifer Cooper & GrooveSpan, unique cuisine from Maryland Country Caterers, a robotics demonstration and laser show, and a silent auction featuring vacation getaways, artwork, private tours of local landmarks and hard-to-find tickets. Exclusive tours of CSM’s new state-of-the-art building will be offered throughout the evening. 

“The gala gives us an opportunity to showcase our newest facility and provides a source of scholarship funding for our students. A large number of our students require financial assistance, and the gala will provide new funding to assist those students,” said Dr. Richard Fleming, CSM vice president and dean of the Prince Frederick Campus. Last year, the CSM Foundation provided more than $300,000 in scholarships to more than 350 students and raised more than $150,000 for programs and classroom technology.

The evening is black-tie optional and tickets are $100 for a single, $175 for a couple.
