The Sport Management (SPM) Club at Syracuse University announced McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of its 12th Annual Charity Sports Auction. Slated for December 10 in the backcourt of the Carrier Dome, silent bidding on hundreds of auction items, including sports memorabilia and hands-on experiences, electronics and tickets to major sporting events, will take place in conjunction with the SU men’s basketball game vs. Boston University.

“We are thrilled that the Sport Management Club has chosen McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of this year’s Charity Sports Auction. The funds raised from this event will stay in Onondaga County, helping provide services to hundreds of abused children, putting them on a path of healing,” said Linda Cleary, Executive Director.
