The Legacy reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails at The Vault Wine Bar in the Hotel Fredonia. The Legacy Dinner will begin at 7 p.m. in the Banita Ballroom of the Fredonia. The dinner will feature a live auction, beginning at 8 p.m. and the Benefit Drawing, where the winning ticket will be drawn. The Benefit Drawing tickets are $100 each and if drawn as the winning ticket, $10,000 will be added to the scholarship of the winner’s choice or to the SFA Alumni Association Endowment Fund.
Unique to this year’s Homecoming events is an online auction. The online auction will feature highly rated items and activities. The online auction will run from October 6th until October 21st. Please visit www.biddingforgood.com/SFAHomecoming to view the online auction items.
The SFA Alumni Association encourages you to participate in an effort to increase the scholarship endowment that serves as a valuable resource for future generation of Lumberjacks. All proceeds from the live auction, online auction and Benefit Drawing go toward the SFA Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.
