FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The 28th annual Ram Good Time Auction Saturday at the Hilton Fort Collins was a success, as the silent and live auctions both entertained those in attendance and helped raise significant funds for CSU student-athlete scholarships.
The event, which was emceed by CSU's six-time gold medalist Amy Van Dyken, was attended by more than 650 Rams fans, who combined to raise $212,500 toward the CSU General Athletic Scholarship Fund.
Through the dedication and generosity of CSU alumni, donors and the Fort Collins community, the Ram Good Time Auction has now raised more than $3.3 million toward scholarships for CSU student-athletes throughout the years. The school collects tuition and fees from every student, including those awarded full-ride athletics scholarships, and the athletic department is asked to generate those funds.
For those that missed the auction, or those looking forward to another chance to support CSU student-athletes, the CSU Ram Club will have an online auction later this spring and has several events lined up in the coming months, including three golf tournaments.
The Ram Good Time Auction could not have gone off without the contributions of the 45 volunteers who helped to gather items and set up for the auctions.
The two biggest individual winners of the night were Casey Yahn, who won a Nissan XTerra courtesy of Tynan's Nissan and Pepsi, and Lea Ann Devlin, who won the Coors Cash Drawing of $1,000.
For those who were in attendance at the auction, or those who couldn't be there, the university is expected to place the outstanding video played at the event online, on the home page of CSURams.com, as soon as possible.
