Please review the sponsorship opportunities for this exciting event. Your support will help many projects such as:
This year’s keynote speaker is Lee Corso, long-time sports broadcaster with ESPN.
Corso has been featured on ESPN’s College GameDay since its inception in 1987. Corso played football for Florida State University and went into coaching after college. He was the head coach at Louisville, Indiana and Northern Illinois.
Corso may be most famous for his College GameDay antics. Each week, he will share his prediction for that week’s big game by donning the mascot head for that school. Last year, he made his 250th prediction. Corso has worn the head of Herbie Husker five times to predict a win for Nebraska. Over the years on GameDay, Corso has correctly picked the Huskers to win 20 times.
Online bidding for silent auction this year
On June 4, the gala will begin with something new. This year’s event will have more than 70 silent auction items available online for real-time bidding on your smartphone at the event or from home on your computer. No more going back to the table to check and see if you’ve been outbid for the item you want – just check the site. Representatives at the event will be available with tablets to assist anyone without a smartphone to bid on items.
After dinner, there will be live auctions – including vacations, concerts and Husker tickets.
Tickets to the gala are available for $175 per person. Golf foursomes are also still available. For more information, please contact:
