DanceBlue Silent Auction: Supporting the Kids

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 31, 2016) — DanceBlue always brings excitement and spirit to the early months of spring semester on campus. Now there is another tradition to look forward to when missing a reason to break it down — the DanceBlue Silent Auction. From 5-8:30 p.m., Nov. 12, DanceBlue invites alumni, faculty and community members to support and celebrate the upcoming 12th marathon in the Woodford Reserve Room at Commonwealth Stadium.

Enjoy dinner, live music and exciting silent auction items such as Randall Cobb's signed jersey and Lollapalooza tickets. On top of that, take in the amazing view of the new Commonwealth Stadium and the luxurious experience the Woodford Reserve Room has to offer. The evening will be one to remember, but not solely for the reasons listed above.

The DanceBlue Silent Auction will be a special night of relishing in what this organization and university have done for the lives of others. The kids in the Kentucky Children's Hospital DanceBlue Hematology/Oncology Clinic are the reason this auction exists. DanceBlue is also transforming the lives of current students. The silent auction provides another opportunity to support, love and celebrate the kids and this organization filled with passion and purpose, always "For The Kids."

Tickets can be purchased through the Student Involvement Ticket Center in Bowmen's Den, over the phone at 859-257-8427 or online at http://tinyurl.com/DBSilentAuction. Come support DanceBlue, for the sleepless nights of fighting, the amazing memories, and for the day when cancer no longer is a battle to be fought.

DanceBlue is the University of Kentucky’s 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon that benefits the Golden Matrix Fund and the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic. Now in its 12th year, DanceBlue has raised more than $9.8 million dollars for pediatric cancer research and child life efforts.
