2016 Dine & Bid Sets Fundraising Record

The University of Jamestown has announced that the 30th Annual Dine and Bid set an event fund raising record. The evening was hosted by President and Mrs. Badal, with 360 people in attendance and 200 volunteers supporting the event. Over $125,000 was raised for the benefit of student scholarships.

“We are incredibly appreciative of the outstanding support we receive.” said Morgan Bossman, Coordinator of Special Events, “Assistance from UJ staff, faculty, alumni and friends plus the Jamestown community is invaluable. Dine and Bid could not be a success without their help through sponsorships, item donations, in-kind donations, or serving on the committee. It takes a community to put forth an event of this kind and we are fortunate to have an outstanding community to partner with.”

The night was filled with events, including both silent and live auctions, student skits by the football, baseball, and basketball teams, along with the student senate, and the science club. In addition to the skits, many students spoke on what it meant to be a Jimmie, and how important student scholarships were to them.

The 31st annual Dine and Bid is scheduled for April 22nd, 2017!
