Raw & Refined


The "Raw & Refined" night of the 42nd annual Stafford Dinner provided Northwood University Hospitality Management students with real work experience as they combined raw industrialized elements and refined dining.

“Great events have a way of bringing family, friends and colleagues together in a truly special and unique way,” said Nicholas Hamilton, assistant professor and Hospitality Management chair. “The Stafford Dinner proved this yet again. The Northwood University Hospitality students came together with a collective intention to provide an exceptionally memorable evening.”

Al Booney, a hospitality expert, spoke at the event, sharing his industry knowledge and ideas with Northwood students. Along with Booney’s presentation, guests were entertained by James Pagel Jazz Trio, Flare Bartending by Cory Fobar, and had the opportunity to take home goods from the silent auction and Treasure Box.
