I am a longtime lurker, have been reading on here since the Kito days, and I love the passion that everyone here has for OU.
A bit selfishly, I am posting about a great fundraising event happening this Saturday, February 10th, at the Hub Stadium in Auburn Hills. All proceeds from the event go towards the Golden Grizzly Spirit Award, which is a scholarship that I helped fund along with 8 other die hard OU alums. This scholarship gets awarded once a year to the student who has the most school spirit, is acively involved in OU activities (especially the Grizz Gang), and someone who really bleeds black and gold. You may recall seeing our current winner announced and honored at halftime of the 2/2 game against UIC. So far this scholarship has been 100% funded by OU alums and their close friends and families, with a majority of the donations coming in very small amounts from young alums. I'm proud to give to this scholarship because it helps to give back to the students who really care about OU, just like all of us here.
So about the fundraiser: Each event ticket comes with 2 hours of unlimited Bomb Bowling, Pizza, and Pop for $25 a person. This is a great deal as Bomb Bowling is regularly pretty expensive and they have really good pizza!
There will also be some amazing raffle prizes: VIP courtside seats, large packs of game seats, signed OU merchandise, tickets to Motor City Madness, as well as some other non-OU related prizes. Many of these are one of a kind items you can't get anywhere else
Time: 6 - 8 pm
Location: 2550 Takata Dr, Auburn Hills, MI 48326
Price: $25 per ticket
