Bemidji State University isn’t just asking the Beaver fans to “Go Green” this spring. It’s asking them to go to The Green & White – a dinner and auction to benefit BSU athletics Saturday, April 12, in the Sanford Center arena.
“The Green & White is a new and creative way to generate revenue that will allow future funding for BSU student-athletes and their teams. With the help of many volunteers who care deeply about Bemidji State University, the dinner and auction will be a wonderful evening to socialize and share in the dreams of our students,” said BSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Tracy Dill.
An impressive array of more than 80 silent auction items will kick off the event followed by dinner and a live auction. Live auction items include the opportunity to dine with top BSU hockey players Matt Read ’11 and Erin Cody ’11, two tickets to watch Read play for the Philadelphia Flyers and a two-night stay at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel in historic downtown Philadelphia.
If that’s not enough, alumni Trent ’87 And Beth ’89 Baalke have put together a dream package for any sports fan. The package for four includes tickets to watch five-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers at the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara – from general manager Trent Baalke’s personal suite. The winners of this package also will receive four pre-game field passes, four passes for a post-game barbeque with 49ers players and staff, one parking pass, 49ers game-day gear for the group and two night’s hotel accommodations (two rooms) at the 49ers’ team hotel, the Santa Clara Marriott.
The event will feature electronic bidding during the silent auction. Bidders will be able to keep tabs on their bids on their phones. BSU student athletes and coaches will be on hand to meet and mingle with fans.
This event was created to support Bemidji State student-athletes, who pursue their academic and athletic dreams while proudly wearing the Green and White.
Tickets to this inaugural event are $100 per person and may be purchased online or by calling (218) 755-2294.
