Boise State fans have a chance to get their hands on exciting memorabilia and tickets this month during the Boise State Auction 2013.

Lovers of the orange and blue can bid online Feb. 12 through 26 for items ranging from tickets to athletic events, gift certificates, Bronco items and the chance to watch the Colorado State basketball game from the Arena Club seats.  One lucky bidder will earn the opportunity to attend the pre-game ‘Chalk Talk’ with coaches.

A black-tie dinner and live auction will be held on Saturday, May 4, to continue the scholarship fundraising. The yearly tradition started in 1983 at Boise State as a way to provide more financial opportunities to students, through the support of alumni and generous local Boise businesses.

Dignitary tables with Dr. Bob Kustra, Coach Chris Petersen and Coach Leon Rice have already sold for $6,000 apiece, according to details on the auction website.

The auction and gala dinner proceeds fund scholarships for students at Boise State and is sponsored by the Boise State Alumni Association.  This event has raised more than $4 million in funds for academic and athletic rewards through the Boise State Alumni Association’s Legacy Scholarship endowment and the Bronco Athletic Association’s Athletic Excellence Scholarship endowment.
