VSU’s Men’s Basketball team will be hosting a fundraiser called the 2012 Friends of VSU’s Men’s Basketball Classic which includes an auction, dinner, and a golf tournament to help meet the budget for their program.
The fundraiser spans two days for the three events that they will be hosting.
On Thursday, they will be having a steak dinner and a live and silent auction from 5-8pm at the Elks Club. On Friday, they will also host a 4 person gold scramble at the Valdosta Country Club at 8am.
“It’s a fundraiser that we do every year in the fall, and all the proceeds go to support our program,” Nick Gast, associate head coach of the men’s basketball team, said. “In the state of Georgia, athletics aren’t funded by the states so it’s private money that helps us.”
Gast explained the certain events that they would be hosting.
Anyone is invited these events. To attend the dinner, the price is $25 per person. To play in the Golf Tournament on Friday, the price is $125 per person, and to attend both events is $150 per person.
