The Sport Management Club’s 15th Annual Charity Sports Auction takes place Saturday, November 16, 2019 in the Syracuse University Carrier Dome backcourt. Doors open at 5 p.m.

The Sport Management Club is a student-run organization in Falk College’s Department of Sport Management. Over the last 14 years, the Sport Management Club has raised over $460,000 for local charities.

Make-A-Wish Central New York is the beneficiary of the 15th Annual Charity Sports Auction. Make-A-Wish CNY grants the wishes of critically ill children in their 15-county footprint. Research shows that a wish builds the physical and emotional strength a child needs to fight, and often overcome their illness.

The event is a silent auction format with bid sheets assigned to each individual item for participants to place their bids. The backcourt consists of approximately 100 tables filled with a variety of auction items. The items consist of sports memorabilia, Syracuse University items, jewelry, gift baskets, and a wide range of items that would be appropriate holiday gifts.

Purchase of a game ticket for the Syracuse University men’s basketball game vs. Seattle University at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 16 is necessary for access to the auction. Tickets can be purchased on the Syracuse University Athletics website, at the Carrier Dome Box, or by phone at 1.800.DOMETIX.
