Navy & Gold Gala set for Saturday, July 26
Dust off your boots and saddle up the horses—it’s time for a visit to the Wild, Wild West at this year’s Navy and Gold Gala. Hosted by the William Penn Athletic Booster Club, this fundraising event is sure to be a fun-filled evening with silent and live auctions, dinner, contests, photo booth, shooting gallery, and raffle drawings.
Formerly the Duck Plucker’s Ball, the Navy and Gold Gala will be held Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 5:00 pm–10:00 pm at the Penn Central Mall in Oskaloosa. This year’s theme is the “Wild, Wild West”. Guests are encouraged to participate in any of the evening’s contests, including the “Boots & Bling” Best Dressed Contest and Best Table Decoration. There are still seats available, so grab your partner and do-si-do to the Navy and Gold Gala. Tickets are $35 per person and include a delicious dinner catered by Sodexo. Make plans to attend this fun event now.
Don’t miss out on a chance to bid on a fantastic array of items valued at over $10,000 given by generous donors in the community and around the Midwest. Some of packages include getaway trips, tickets to special events, professional and semi-professional sporting event tickets, Iowa and Iowa State tailgating fan essentials, original artwork, William Penn gear, gift certificates, and much more! William Penn alumnus, Rick Wrisinger ’77, of Wrisinger Auctions, will serve as the auctioneer for the live auction portion of the evening.
Raffle drawings will also be held for a Remington Versa Max® Sportsman® 12-guage 28” Shotgun and a Weber Spirit Gas grill donated by True Value Hardware. Tickets are 1 for $5 or 3 for $10.
