Bates Technical College Foundation will host a fundraiser, Bates Sizzles, from 5:30 to 9 p.m Thursday, April 19, at the Pacific Grill Events Center, 1530 Pacific Ave., Tacoma.
Chef Gordon Naccarato will showcase Pacific Grill’s appetizers, including cheeseburger sliders, “meat candy,” and an elegant signature cocktail. There will also be a silent auction and a wine ring toss that features a chance to win bottles of wine.
Funds raised assist students and programs with scholarships, mini-grants and more. At Bates, all students are eligible to apply for the foundation’s general scholarships, and others who fit certain criteria can apply for a variety of program-specific scholarships
