SDSU Announces the Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction
Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction
An event to invest in Lifelong Champions
When: Saturday, April 30, 2011
Where: Frost Arena on the campus of South Dakota State University
After careful consideration, SDSU Athletics and the Stan Marshall Auction and Golf Committee decided to separate the Auction and Golf Classic to separate times of the year. The Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction will take place in Frost Arena on Saturday, April 30, 2011, and the Stan Marshall Golf Classic will take place at the Brookings Country Club on June 4, 2011.
"The Stan Marshall Auction and Golf Classic has been a cornerstone of Jackrabbit Athletics for over 30 years and we will never forget the impact those events had on South Dakota State University," SDSU director of athletics Justin Sell said about the separation of the events. "The Auction and Golf Classic are both great events, we split the events so that we can improve both events and maximize the dollars raised to support our outstanding student-athletes. The committee really pulled together and organized an event that will make all Jackrabbits proud!"
The two groups decided on the separation in order to create two great events that all SDSU fans and supporters can be a part of. The Stan Marshall Golf Classic is one of the longest standing traditions at South Dakota State Athletics and will be for a long time to come.
Stan Marshall has been a tremendous event for many years, but we wanted to take
the support of SDSU Athletics to another level," longtime Stan Marshall
Committee member Ryan Krogman said. "By separating the auction and golf classic
into two separate events, we feel we can maximize our resources and raise even
more money for student-athlete scholarships!"
Points of emphasis:
The Stan Marshall Golf Classic takes place on June 4, 2011
All money raised goes to support scholarships for South Dakota State student-athletes
Tickets go on sale Feb. 1, 2011
