FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The deadline to register for the 2011 Ram Good Time Auction is quickly approaching, and Rams fans have many reasons to be in attendance this year.
The Ram Good Time Auction is one of the most important traditions in support of Colorado State University Athletics, and has raised more than $3.2 million over the years to benefit the scholarships of CSU student-athletes.
This year, the 30th edition of the auction will be held at 5 p.m. on March 5, at the Embassy Suites in Loveland, Colo. The new location will provide an exciting atmosphere as well as much more elbow room.
What’s more, CSU’s all-time leading receiver David Anderson, currently with the NFL’s Houston Texans, will be the emcee for the evening.
Tickets for the auction are $125 per person, or $1,250 for a reserved table of 10. The ticket price includes drinks and dinner, both a silent and live auction, live music and dancing.
