Georgia College Athletic Auction Right Around the Corner
MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - "Milledgeville's Night Out," The 14th Annual Georgia College Athletic Auction hits the Centennial Center Saturday, April 14 at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $125 per couple or $500 for a reserved table. The ticket includes dinner, an open bar, an opportunity to bid on exciting items, and a chance to win $10,000 cash in a reverse raffle.
Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased by stopping by the athletics office in the Centennial Center, contacting the athletics department at (478) 445-6341, or purchasing directly from any GC Athletics staff member.
Director of Athletics Wendell Staton looks forward to this event each year as another opportunity for GC athletics to connect with the Baldwin County community.
?The Annual GC Athletics Auction and Reverse Raffle has become a staple in the community. It is a great social event for the citizens of middle Georgia and provides a wonderful evening of food, fun, and fellowship. We are so pleased that the community has supported this event for nearly two decades and I look forward to personally thanking them for their support on April 14.?
The auction has typically raised between $35,000 and $40,000 each year, a critical number to be put toward special building projects and scholarships for student-athletes who excel both on the playing field and in the classroom.
With a wide array of items up for bid nearly each year, Bobcat fans attending the auction have taken home anything from vacation stays in Costa Rica, Hilton Head or Panama City, get-aways at the Ritz Carlton, a stack of coupons for free ice cream cakes, Atlanta Braves tickets or golf on Lake Oconee.
