Special guests at the event, attended by more than 700 supporters, include CSU President Tony Frank and new Rams football coach Mike Bobo. Former Ram standout tight end Joel Dreessen served with Matt Wozniak as master of ceremonies, while several other CSU coaches and former Ram athletes were on hand as well.

Among items up for bid was a commemorative stone to be placed at the new CSU stadium, trips to Alaska, dinner with Bobo and golf with women’s basketball coach Ryun Williams.
