Bid numbers were flying on Friday, August 23 at the Lobo Club Howl of a Good Time Auction! Not only was the event a great way to kick off the 2012-13 Athletic season at UNM, but over $180,000 was raised in support of student-athlete scholarships, our biggest event to date! Over 500 Lobo fans were in attendance at Hotel Albuquerque to bid on more than 250 items through the live and silent auction. This event gave fans a chance to catch up with friends, student-athletes and coaches during an enjoyable and festive evening. Lobo Pride filled the air as the UNM marching band commenced the dinner program. This event is not only the single largest fundraiser of the year for UNM Athletics, but it is also a means for Lobo fans to come together for a common cause – raising money for student-athlete scholarships.
“This year’s Howl of a Good Time Auction was a tremendous success. Not only did everyone seem to have a great time, but we were able to raise more money for student-athlete scholarships than we ever have,” said Lee De Leon, Executive Director of the Lobo Club. “It was an outstanding team effort between the staff, volunteers, board members, coaches and student-athletes, and we appreciate everyone who contributed to its success.”
Mark your calendars now and join the Lobo Club for the 12th Annual Howl of a Good Time auction next year on August 22nd, 2014.
