Benefit Show and Auction at Bowling Green

From the Bowling Green University official athletic website:

The Bowling Green State University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will host the Falcon Variety Show and Auction on Sunday, February 25. The event will begin at 3:00 p.m. at Anderson Arena. Cost of admission is $3.00 and all proceeds will benefit Dance Marathon.

The variety show will feature ten acts staged by various BGSU student-athletes and will be followed by a student-athlete date auction. The winners of the auction will attend a group dinner date on April 1.

"The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee has been working really hard to help give back to our fellow students who support us throughout the year," said SAAC president Caroline Keating. "The Falcon Variety Show and Auction will allow the community to see a different side of BGSU Student-Athletes. We are really looking forward to a great turn out and being able to give a big donation to Dance Marathon!"

The student-athlete advisory committee is comprised of one representative from each team to serve as leadership group that encourages unity and camaraderie between teams and among all student-athletes. The Student Athlete Advisory Committee at Bowling Green State University strives to be the primary link between student athletes and administration to enhance the experience of all student-athletes.

Dance Marathon is an annual 32-hour fundraising event in support of the Children's Miracle Network. Since its inception in 1995, DM has raised more than $1.3 million to care for the miracle children who suffer from terminal illnesses, acute diseases, birth defects and severe trauma. With more than 2,000 BGSU students from some 70 student organizations, this is the third largest CMN Dance Marathon in the United States and the largest student-run philanthropy in Ohio.
