Blue And White Dinner Auction

Blue and White Dinner Auction

Western Alumni are proud to host the 3rd Annual “Blue and White Dinner Auction”, Saturday, May 30, 2015.

The Western Rugby Alumni are excited to extend the opportunity of you to participate in the 3rd Annual Blue & White Auction Dinner, Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Bellingham Technical College’s Settlemyer Hall.

This event raises money to support WWU Men’s Rugby Club as they work toward achieving continued success at a national level. The WWU Men’s Rugby Club have recently represented the University in the 2013 USA Rugby National D1-AA Final Four in Bowling Green, Ohio and the 2012 USA Rugby National 7’s Tournament at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. The Vikings have had a very successful 2014-15 season so far and securing a seed in 2015 USA Rugby D1-AA National Championship Tournament is achievable.

WWU Men’s Rugby Club has limited financial support from University funds, making this event critical for raising money to help the players cover travel, equipment, and other expenses.

The dinner auction will be attended by alumni, community members, parents, friends, and anyone who supports the goals of the Men’s Rugby program at WWU.  Emcee, auctioneer, Director of Rugby for WRA, and BC Rugby Union Hall of Fame inductee, Paul Horne, always makes sure it is a lively and enjoyable evening, so please make plans to attend

Here is how you can help:

1.  Please consider donating an item to the silent or live auction. These items can be donated from yourself, your employer, or a local business. Popular auction items in the past have included weekend get-away, rounds of golf, dinner/hotel packages, adventure excursions and much more. Please go to the Blue & White Auction donation tab and click on the donation form, complete the information, and we’ll take care of the rest

2.  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend the event on May 30, 2015 on the campus of Bellingham Technical College’s Settlemyer Hall.  At the event you can meet the team members and purchase auction items to support them. Individual seats or tables are open for purchase for the dinner auction.

We greatly appreciate your consideration of a donation and/or attending the event. We look forward to supporting the WWU Men’s Rugby Club as they pursue their education, play a great team sport, and shine a light on Western as a school that teaches life lessons both in the classroom and on the field.
