Let the Bidding War Begin! CSU SAAC to Host “Date Auction”

Like Columbus State Athletics on Facebook!

Columbus – The Columbus State University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee invites you to attend the first-ever CSU Student-Athlete "Date Auction.”  The event will take place on Thursday, February 23rd beginning at 8:00 p.m. and lasting roughly an hour and a half.  Scott Miller will serve as the emcee as the auction will take place in the Lumpkin Center.

All proceeds that are raised will go towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation during their “Week of Wishes.”

A night of laughter, fun, and food is being planned, so we hope you are able to join us!  Admission is $1, but we encourage you to bring some extra change to get in on the bidding yourself!  Bids will start at $1 and increase by $.50 increments.

We have challenged 21 student-athletes to come up with creative ways to get the highest bids in raising money for such a wonderful cause, while keeping it appropriate, of course.  Each participant and winning bidder will be treated to a group "date," hosted by SAAC, on February 25 after the men's basketball game in the President's Club.

Below is a list of participants going up for bids.  Please mark your calendar for February 23 as we raise money for a great cause.
