Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N
On Saturday night I attended the 3rd annual 2008 UCLA True Blue Celebration. This is a great event held to raise money for all programs within UCLA athletics through both silent and live auctions. The silent auction offered more than 500 items inlcuding autographed Bruin and Laker memoribilia. It was hard not the break the bank and bid on everything in the room, but I did get a great autographed photo of Cade McNown in action as a Bruin!
The live auction included dinner with Howland, golf with Neuheisal, floor seats to a UCLA Pac-10 home game and running out of the tunnel with the football team and staying on the sidelines for the games against Tennessee and usc. My family won the TN auction item, so we are just a LITTLE bit exctied - is it Labor Day yet??? There was also wine tasting and food provided from many local eateries.
One of the highlights of the night was a panel of former UCLA greats led by James Washington. The panel included Terry Donahue, Cade McNown, David Norrie, Wayne Cook and Rick Neuheisal. They answered questions and told stories about their days at UCLA. I took a few video highlights for those who could not attend... join me more after the jump.
