Please join us for an exciting evening of dinner, dancing and entertainment at the 2012 Grizzly Gala! Held at the grand Royal Park Hotel in downtown Rochester, the evening festivities include a silent auction with some fantastic items. Tickets are $100 each and include valet parking, a strolling dinner, delicious desserts, full open bar and live entertainment by the Zero Balance Band. Click the Registration button above to register.
Proceeds from the ticket and auction sales will directly benefit the OUAA Scholarship Program. To date, the OUAA has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to qualified OU students. The funding for these scholarships is provided through generous donations by alumni and community members, as well as revenue earned from OUAA programs and events such as The Grizzly Gala. In 2011 alone, the OUAA awarded nearly $90,000 in scholarships to 39 OU students. We want to get that number even higher for 2012!
This year, we have some amazing auction items including tickets to the Ellen DeGeneres show in Los Angeles and a Windy City Weekend Getaway. There are Beauty Boutique Parties at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as a weekend lease for a sleek Cadillac! For the ultimate Tigers fan, we will auction the "Fan Experience Package" which includes a visit to the dug out and a chance to meet players. If relaxation is your thing, we also have an unbelievable Dream Vacation package!
Registration for this event has closed. If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please contact Christina Simon, alumni engagement outreach event coordinator, at 248-364-6134 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
