Aramark was listed on the college website as a "gold" sponsor for the event held at the Huntington Hilton, contributing $10,000.

The college trustees in February approved a five-year contract with Aramark with a five-year renewal option, which will for the first time impose a $200 a year mandatory food service plan at the Brentwood and Selden campuses for 12,000 students, bringing in $2.4 million.
