FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Tickets are no longer available to the Ram Good Time Auction, one of the most popular traditions in Colorado State University Athletics. This year's event will be hosted by six-time Olympic Gold Medalist and former CSU student-athlete Amy Van Dyken.
The event, which takes place at the Hilton Fort Collins on March 7, includes both a silent and live auction on hundreds of unique items, raffles, dinner and other entertainment. Through the dedication and generosity of CSU alumni, donors and the Fort Collins community, the Ram Good Time Auction has raised over $3.1 million toward scholarships for CSU student-athletes throughout the years.
Everyone who purchased a ticket is entered into the Coors $1,000 cash drawing.
Also, one lucky fan will drive away in a brand new Nissan XTerra, courtesy of Tynan's Nissan and Pepsi.
Van Dyken, an all-American swimmer at Colorado State and a Colorado native, burst onto the scene in 1996, winning four gold medals at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, becoming the first American woman to accomplish such a feat. In the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, Van Dyken overcame two shoulder surgeries and won two more gold medals, bringing her total up to six, the fifth-most gold medals won by any woman in Olympic history.
For more information on all the great items that will be up for bid, visit the Ram Club's Web site at http://csuramclub.colostate.edu.
