ACTION ALERT (Update): BN Forces Morgan Ctr To Remove Trojie MIMBO Item from Fundraiser

Bumped. This is beyond pathetic. GO BRUINS. -N

UPDATE II: Great job guys! Morgan Center removed the MIMBO item from its auction!

This is what they have up now:

UCLA-USC Game Canvas, Autographed
06-07 Team & Coach Autographed UCLA Football Photographed Canvas

McDowell Autographed Framed Picture
Cy Young award winner Jack McDowell autographed framed photo.

Autographed #7 Arizona Cardinals Jersey
Leinart Autographed #7 Arizona Cardinals Jersey

Thanks again to everyone who called. Clearly they are paying attention to BN. Go Bruins!!!! - bluestreet

So the UCLA athletic department is having a "True Blue Celebration," which is nice.

But check this out. They are having a "silent auction" featuring obviously many UCLA athletics related memorabilia. But look what shows up among other things in their top items (bold mine) featured in this silent auction:

UCLA-USC Game Canvas, Autographed
06-07 Team & Coach Autographed UCLA Football Photographed Canvas

Autographed #7 Arizona Cardinals Jersey
Leinart Autographed #7 Arizona Cardinals Jersey

Say what?!!!!

Clearly they don't pay attention to details over at Morgan Center.

If you want to give them a call about this they have this number up: 310.206.3302

I'd say we light up their switch board. I wouldn't use a Leinart jersey to clean up dogsh!t. It has no place in a UCLA event.

UPDATE I: Here is the email Morgan Center sent out to promote TBC:

We are proud to be UCLA alumni and we continue to work towards providing our student-athletes with the best possible academic and athletic opportunities. The second annual True Blue Celebration will be on Saturday, June 9, 2007 at the John Wooden Center, assisting us in giving our student-athletes the college education and experience they deserve.

This is the UCLA Athletic Department's largest fundraising event and will feature more than 500 silent auction items and an amazing live auction. Last year's event sold out with more than 800 Bruin fans in attendance and we expect the same enthusiasm this year.

We ask that you join in our efforts to make the True Blue Celebration a special and successful event. We are requesting your support through the donation of a wonderful item that can be showcased in our Silent Auction or Live Auction portion of our program.

HT to What's Up Dawg.

Unbelievable. The largest athletic fund raising event. And they are using this Trojie MIMBO's jersey to raise money from Bruin fans.

Again here is the number to call up and ask WTF is this jersey doing in an event organized to attract UCLA alums: 310.206.3302

Go Bruins!!!!
