The Western Washington Men’s Rugby Club Alumni Association is proud to host the First Annual WWU Men’s Rugby Club “Navy and White Dinner Auction“, Saturday, May 18, 2013.
The 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 17th and ending Sunday, May 19th. It 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 past 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 scholarships to help students directly involved and participating in the WWU Men’s Rugby program.
Your continued support through the Men’s Rugby Alumni Association or the WWU Foundation is essential to WWU Men’s Rugby Club continued and future success.
We would especially like to recognize and thank Jim and Karen Solimano for their generous financial support of the “Navy and White Dinner Auction”.
