Wine and tasting auction

Cal Poly Pomona held its fourth-annual wine and tasting auction on May 1.

The event brought nearly 800 visitors to Cal Poly Pomona and helped the school in its efforts to raise $150 million.

Proceeds from the event will go toward scholarships and academic enrichment programs.

The event's silent auction featured items such as a Los Angeles Lakers jersey signed by the 2010 championship team and a week-long trip to the coast of France.

A new addition to this year's event was inclusion of gourmet food trucks.

The trucks at the event included Barbie's Q - A Rollin' BBQ Joint, Calbi Fusion Tacos and Burritos and a truck that was featured on the Food Network's "Great Food Truck Race": Crepes Bonaparte.

Tractor show draws thousands

Cal Poly Pomona's Farm Store hosted its fifth-annual Tractor and Car Show and Strawberry Festival on Saturday.

The event featured a variety of custom, antique, classic, hot rod and muscle cars, motorcycles and tractors.

The free event also included a petting zoo, face painting and horse rides hosted by various student clubs. There were over 20 vendors at the event on Saturday.

Andrea Struve, administrative support coordinator, said there were more than 8,000 people at this year's event.
