Table Sponsorships Available for Hancock Athletics’ Joe White Memorial Dinner and Auction

Tickets to watch a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, a basketball autographed by the Los Angeles Lakers as well as unique dining opportunities for up to 30 people are among the new items added to the auction block for the 15th annual Joe White Memorial Dinner and Auction.

The biggest and most important fundraiser of the year for the Allan Hancock College athletics department, the dinner and auction will take place Saturday, August 27, 2016, at the Elks Lodge in Santa Maria. 

Guests will be able to bid on hundreds of items, including tickets to watch the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco 49ers, rooms at luxury resorts, sports memorabilia, rare wines and homemade arts and crafts.

Sponsored by the Hancock College Boosters, Inc., the annual event has raised more than $700,000 for capital improvements to benefit Hancock athletics.

Donations have resulted in the renovation and naming of Joe White Gymnasium and John Osborne Field as well as upgrades to the softball field and renovations to the press box in the gym.

Last year, the event raised nearly $70,000 for the athletics department.

The Elks Lodge is located at 1309 North Bradley Road in Santa Maria. Doors open at 5 p.m. for a social hour and silent auction.

A New York strip dinner prepared by Cowboy Flavor will be served at 7:00 p.m., with the live auction to follow.

The price of admission to the fundraiser is $60 per person. Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $ 5,000.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
