The Lorenzo Patiño Banquet is a public service awards ceremony and scholarship fundraiser named in memory of Judge Lorenzo Patiño, whose career exemplified the commitment to public service and diversity that defines King Hall. Patiño, a 1973 King Hall graduate, was appointed to the Municipal Court of Sacramento in 1980 and co-founded the University of Northern California in 1983.

The Patiño banquet funds scholarships for students whose work helps bring justice and equality to underserved communities nationwide. The Patiño Award recognizes a student who has demonstrated extraordinary service and dedication to underserved communities.
