Soup-R Bowl XIII: February 2021

Over the last 13 years, UNM-Valencia and Tomé Gallery have partnered to create scholarships for students studying in the arts. This homegrown effort has grown tremendously over the years, serving almost 400 people last year and raising nearly $50,000 since its inception. The Soup-R Bowl has become a community favorite.  


The 12th Annual Gala: March 2021

The Gala is our campus’s largest scholarship fundraiser. Sponsoring the Gala helps change students’ lives through scholarships.

We need your help to reach our sponsorship goal of $80,000.

How can you help support scholarships?

  • Donate gift baskets, gift certificates, event packages, original pieces of art, jewelry, and more.
  • Purchase individual tickets at $50 each.
  • Sponsor a table. More information on sponsorships listed below.

Proceeds from this event are matched 1-to-1 with funds from the U.S. Department of Education and are utilized to provide student scholarships in perpetuity.
