Softball Auction raises $11,000

The Trojan Womens Softball Team hosted a festive atmosphere with their Fourth Annual Christmas Auction at the Boone Business Building Convocation Center Saturday, Dec. 6, 2008.


Shelby Mashburn spearheaded and hosted the evening along with Megan Suggs. The group was visited by former Trevecca president Dr. Millard Reed, Nancy Dunlap (Director of Alumni Services), Steve Harris (Associate Provost and Dean of Student Development), as well as Dr. & Mrs. Gerald Skinner (who were honored with Best Seats in the house chairs). Luis Del Rio introduced and Athletic Director Dr. Brenda Patterson addressed the crowd. Head Softball Coach Ben Tyree introduced the 2008-2009 Trojan Softball Team. The group was honored to have returning guests: Lisa Bergmann, Ashley Camp, Beth Castner, Nicki Levering, and Brittany Johnson (who was honored with All American certificate).


A portion of the funds contributed came through tickets for a delicious meal provided by Pioneer Foods. Also, the silent auction brought many contributions. Among the items for bidding were Christmas wreaths, Christmas trees, restaurant gift certificates, tickets to football & hockey games, designer clothing, appliances, a 62" HD television, and much more!  This year the team hosted around 100 in attendance, raising approximately $11,000. The lady Trojans work Titans games, Golf tournament, Media Guides and sell field banners.


The Trojan Women’s Softball Team sincerely appreciates all of the Trevecca community and others who participated and contributed to the Fourth Annual Christmas Auction!
