Record-breaking Attendance at 2017 Dine and Bid

On Saturday, April 22, The University of Jamestown hosted its 31st Annual Dine and Bid Benefit Auction. This year, more than 400 individuals attended the event – a record number for UJ. The University raised $141,000 from silent and live auction items to support student scholarships.

“We are so thankful for the outstanding support from our community and alumni. Their dedication to our students and their education continues to amaze me year after year,” said Polly Peterson, UJ Executive Vice President.

Dine and Bid is an annual University of Jamestown dinner auction. All proceeds benefit student scholarships. This year, the theme of the event was Secret Garden. Event committee members transformed the on-campus Larson Center into a whimsical hideaway, full of greenery and other garden-themed décor. After dinner and student entertainments, guests had the opportunity to bid on more than 160 auction items.
