The 35th annual Ram Good Time Auction – the largest single annual fundraiser for scholarships for CSU’s student-athletes – is set for 5 p.m. March 5 at the Embassy Suites in Loveland. Registration is open, and spots are available for full tables or individuals.
The RGTA was started in 1981 by CSU legend Thurman “Fum” McGraw as a way to bring Ram fans together and raise money to support student-athletes. Over the years the auction has raised more than $7 million – including $312,000 last year – and helped thousands of Rams earn their degrees.
This year’s event features guest appearances by CSU President Tony Frank, football coach Mike Bobo, volleyball coach Tom Hilbert and other Ram coaches. Guest emcees are former CSU and Denver Broncos standout Joel Dreessen and local radio personality Paul Wozniak, the radio voice of CSU women’s basketball.
Live, silent auction items
Among items up for bid at the live and silent auctions are vacation trips, experiences with CSU coaches (such as golf and dinner outings), a Nissan Leaf electric car donated by Tynan’s Nissan and Kia, and a shovel and hardhat from the on-campus stadium groundbreaking ceremony.
Tickets are $135 for Ram Club members ($155 for non-Ram Club members) and include buffet dinner and beverages. Tables of 10 cost $1,350.
Auction attendees can take advantage of a room rate special of $129 at the Embassy Suites. Book now by clicking here and using the code “RAM” or by calling 1-800-EMBASSY (362-2779) and asking for the Ram Good Time Auction discounted rate.
