HAYS, Kan. – The annual Tiger Auction and Dinner was a tremendous success once again for Tiger Athletics with nearly $220,000 raised on August 27, 2016. The auction was sold out for the fifth consecutive year. The auction contained 98 live items and 217 silent items this year.
The final net total for the seventh annual auction was $217,467, an increase of $12,220 from the previous year. Live Auction Item #40 generated $86,250 and funds can still be donated throughout the year to this item by visiting www.tigerauction.org. Donations for Live Item #40 are going towards the Lewis Field Stadium Seat Project. FHSU Athletics intends to install 2,400 seats which flip up, creating better clearance in the aisles. As part of the project, stairwells will be widened and handrails will be installed. Name plates will be installed on each seat for those who contribute to Live Item #40 at the $250 level and above.
For those with questions or wanting to donate an item for next year’s Tiger Auction and Dinner, please contact the FHSU Athletic Department at (785) 628-4050.
