You may have received a Save the Date card in the mail like I did for the 33rd Annual Augustana University Athletics Auction on Friday, March 29. If not mark it on your calendars, tell your spouse and friends and remind your secretary to remind you!

Augustana University (with permission)

Each year dozens of supporters donate items for the auction that support scholarships for Augustana University student-athletes.

Silent auction items up for bid will be posted early for bidding. Keep checking back. The live will include a Minnesota Twins getaway, golf outings, advertising packages, vacation packages, art and several other items.

And something special for the ultimate Augie experience is the inside view into the preparation and action that goes into an Augustana football game day. Coach Jerry Olszewski invites you to be a part of the game day experience of Viking football up close and personal this fall. Be an Augustana Football "Coach for the Day" for a home football game this fall.

You will have a chance to visit with the coaching staffs of Augustana and get to know the student athletes too as they will be waiting on you.

The doors open at 5:00 PM on Friday, March 29 with dinner served at 7:00 PM. Then fill your glass and get ready to bid on the live auction starting at 8:00 PM.
