The upbeat evening began with a cocktail reception at the Beckman Center followed by a formal presentation of scholars in an amphitheatre classroom. Each scholar was introduced by the dean of his or her department accompanied by a short delivery about their scientific field of study. Dinner was then served in the dining room mixing tables of students and their families, if able to attend, with their donor/mentors, teachers and ARCS members at large.

Among the generous ARCS members with purpose were Sue Alexopoulos and Diana Casey, co-chairs of the scholarship presentation event; Ralph Clayman, Ann Rowe, Peggy and Joe Stemler, Carolyn Boyd, Pat Beckman, William and Sandra Beckman, Cynthia French , Ellen and Jim Lewis and Marion Pickens. The president of the foundation is Joan Torres.
