Auction Providing Unique A-State “Fan Experience” Opportunities
JONESBORO, Ark. (6/10/17) – The primary fundraising arm for Arkansas State Athletics is currently holding its first ever online “Red Wolves Foundation Auction,” and less than two weeks remain to bid on 25 different premier items and events.
The majority of items – 22 of the 25 specifically – being auctioned are designed to deliver a unique, memorable and fun experience for A-State fans. An easy registration and bidding process can be navigated by visiting 501Auctions.com/RedWolvesGive or downloading the official Arkansas State Athletics app.
Bidding began June 2 and will close Friday, June 23, at 8:00 p.m. Once a participant is registered and has placed a bid, they will be updated via a text message alert any time someone else places a bid on the same item or event.
Incorporating multiple options for A-State fans, bids can be placed within five different categories (fan experience, donor experience, kid experience, tailgate experience and memorabilia).
Additional details and pricing for each auction item are available online, but the fan experience choices include three “Coach for a Game” options, a private practice with the men's basketball program, a private workout with the A-State strength and conditioning staff and two options to play a round of golf with head football coach Blake Anderson or head men's golf coach Mike Hagen.
The five donor experience options include traveling with the men's basketball team to a road game, Woodard McAlister Family Club passes for A-State's home football game versus Miami, tickets to the College Football Playoff National Championship game, tickets to the NCAA Final Four and tickets to a package of five premier A-State events.
There are bidding options designed specifically for kids as well, including a birthday party appearance by Howl, men's basketball and football “player experiences,” and participating with the Red Wolves' spirit squad at a home football or basketball game.
The tailgate experience items allow bids to be placed for a party deck rental at Centennial Bank Stadium, corporate and personal tailgate packages in Tailgate Town and a “Rainmaker Customz” tailgate package.
Fans who have interest in memorabilia items have the opportunity to bid on authentic football, men's basketball and baseball jersey, as well as official adidas A-State gear.
