Cal State University San Marcos (CSUSM) held its 2013 Annual Gala “Mad About CSUSM” on June 9. Attended by 300 guests, the event raised $95,000 for student scholarships, innovative research, student programming and faculty development.

Featuring a ’60s theme based on the popular AMC series Mad Men, Kellogg Plaza was bedecked with a black and white checkered dance floor while buildings were lit up in lights. Festive tables were draped with red satin tablecloths with lush white flowers in a martini glass shaped vase. The guests enjoyed posing in a photo booth inspired by Don Draper’s office while the band “The Heroes” played hits.

Highlights of the night included a silent and live auction, an inspirational video showcasing three student scholarship recipients and a live “Raise the Paddle for Scholarships” auction. Photos/CSUSM
