SAVE THE DATE – AUG. 26, 2017!
The auction is the POSSE’s primary fundraising event for the OSU Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund. Your contribution helps benefit over 450 student-athletes who are pursuing excellence both on and off the playing field. In 2016, this festive evening raised nearly $300,000 for Cowboy and Cowgirl scholarships!
We would like to take this opportunity to ask for your support, by donating an item to the 2017 POSSE Benefit Auction & Dinner. When it comes to suitable auction items, the sky’s the limit … from condo stays and time shares to landscape design and guttering, hardware and appliances to sports memorabilia and event tickets, gift certificates, home furnishings and more! (Take a look at the 2016 Auction Program to see the kinds of great items up for bid.)
For items donated, the donor will receive POSSE Priority Points – three points per $100 in the total retail value of the item(s) received. The retail value will also apply towards your 2016 POSSE benefits, but does not apply toward donor seating contributions for specific sports.
Want to work on a fun, fast-paced event for OSU Athletics? The POSSE has volunteers who serve on Auction Committees working all over the state. Committees are based in Stillwater, Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Volunteer work includes soliciting businesses and individuals for items to be donated for the auction, along with table and individual ticket sales to the event. Setting up the OSU Athletics Center for the event is a massive undertaking and usually begins several days prior to the event. Numerous volunteers are needed in this area, as well. If you would like to volunteer to serve on one of these committees, please contact the POSSE office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-744-7301. We will help you get in touch with someone in your area to coordinate your volunteer efforts.
