The 2017 Bearkat Athletics Auction, presented by the Bearkat Champions Fund, is just around the corner with this year's event set to be held on Saturday, July 29th, at Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum.

The event is set to begin at 5 p.m. with those attending the event being able to designate their donations through table sales and items purchased at the auction to the sport or sports of their choice.

“This event is always exciting because it brings together some of Bearkat Athletics' biggest supporters with our staff and student athletes,” Sam Houston Director of Athletics Bobby Williams said. “By attending and participating in this event each year, our donors make a big difference for Sam Houston Athletics and allow us to Build Champions by enhancing the student-athlete experience.” 

Attendees will be treated to a steak dinner and a brief program, and will have the opportunity for face-to-face interaction with representatives from each sport. Bearkat Athletics will have a variety of items to purchase through the silent and live auctions.

Registration is currently open, with tables available for $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000, with various benefits tied to each. A limited number of individual tickets are available for $150 apiece.

Those interested are encouraged to call (936) 294-4758 or email events@shsu.edu to reserve a table or tickets. For more information you may also call (936) 294-2362.
