Last year's extremely successful auction attracted more than 500 Jackrabbit fans and supporters, and raised $370,000; the equivalent of 27 full, in-state scholarships, to provide wonderful opportunities for Jackrabbit student-athletes.  

"The generosity of our supporters has been incredible," SDSU director of athletics Justin Sell said.  "The bar is continuously being raised for this event. We look forward to having our fans and supporters come together once again to build on the future of SDSU Athletics."

With a wide array of auction items, Jackrabbit memorabilia and fine dining, the event is a first-class evening for all Jackrabbit fans to enjoy.

Thank you to Sanford Health, First Premier Bank, Beal Distributing and J Lohr Vineyards & Wine for making this event possible.
