TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Seminole Boosters and the Florida State athletics department are set to host the fifth annual `Let Us Play' Scholarship Endowment Auction for women's sports. The auction and appetizer event will be held the weekend of the Miami football game on Friday, November 1 at 5:30 p.m. at Florida State's Turnbull Conference Center.
"We are very pleased to host the `Let Us Play' auction for the fifth straight year," said Interim Director of Athletics Vanessa Fuchs. "This is a great opportunity to not only increase our scholarship endowment fund for our women's sports, but it's also a fun night with many current and former student-athletes volunteering their time for this important event. The support we receive from the Seminole community is outstanding and we look forward to another impressive turnout."
The event is an opportunity to support women's athletics and to ensure the continued success of Florida State's 11 female sports teams by contributing to the scholarship endowment fund. The auction has raised $230,000 since its inception in 2009. Tickets can be purchased for $50 per person which includes appetizers and beverages with a cash bar available as well.
"The `Let Us Play' auction enables our donors to help endow scholarships for our women athletes and provides an evening to interact with our student-athletes," said Seminole Booster President Andy Miller. "We are fortunate to have very impressive current and former student-athletes, with incredible life stories, who truly appreciate the life-changing opportunities our donors fund for them. All of our members will remember this auction and enjoy the people they meet."
Organizations can help with the continued success of both the academic and athletic programs by contributing items, services or monetary donations to the event, which will be attended by Seminole fans and supporters, sports enthusiasts and community members. Sports help women to be healthier, happier, more confident, stronger and as a result, more successful in the workplace. It is with that in mind, Seminole Athletics is proud to host the `Let Us Play' Auction.
