AUC hosted its eighth annual Benefit Dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — one of the world's largest art museums, housing over 2 million works of art in collections that span over 5,000 years — in celebration of the University's centennial. The dinner raised more than $1.15 million for Centennial Scholarships to help top students attend AUC — exceeding the University's $1 million target. The event was part of AUC's $100 million Centennial Campaign, which has now reached 80 percent.

The event was hosted in the Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing. Check out these pictures of speakers and attendees.
