The Rugby Alumni are proud to host the Second Annual “Blue and White Dinner Auction”, Saturday, May 17, 2014.
The dinner/auction will take place the same weekend as the WWU and Western Alumni Association’s “Back2Bellingham” event which takes place over the weekend beginning Friday, May 16th and ending Sunday, May 18th. “Back2Bellingham” is a great event with lots of family stuff happening both on and off campus. Click here for more “Back2Bellingham” information.
Your generous contributions this last year have helped fund WWU Men’s Rugby Club’s success in both 7′s (2012 National Tournament) and 15′s (on the verge of a “Sweet Sixteen” seeding in the National Tournament). Without your contributions WWU Men’s Rugby could not have approached the level of success they have achieved so far this year. The Club gets very little in the way of direct funding from the University since they are a club sport. The Club relies on dues (currently $300 per player) and the contributions of alumni and friends to fund travel, equipment, coaching, and other expenses.
The proceeds from this auction will go to help fund programs to help students directly involved and participating in the WWU Men’s Rugby program.
Your continued support through the Rugby Alumni is essential to WWU Men’s Rugby Club continued and future success.
