TAMPA, Fla. – Feb. 2, 2016 —The University of South Florida Alumni Association will host its annual Brahman Bash fundraiser gala at 6 p.m. March 19 in the Gibbons Alumni Center on the USF Tampa campus.
Guests are invited to shine their spurs and slap on their Stetsons for A Night of Boots, Bulls & Bling. Along with the country chic theme, the evening will include music and live entertainment; food, beer, wine and a signature drink, and a silent auction of donated items.
The event is the work of a committee of USF alumni and Association staff, who plan an evening Bulls and USF friends will remember for years to come.
“Brahman Bash gets bigger and better and more full of surprises every year, and 2016 will be no different,” said committee chair Vicki Ahrens. “We have a fun new theme and a great corporate sponsor, Nielsen.”
The Alumni Center will be transformed into a bedazzled version of the Old West, from the décor to the foods, beverages and entertainment. Guests will have dozens of exciting – and some one-of-a-kind – donated silent auction items to bid on throughout the evening.
“We look forward to USF alumni, faculty and students, friends and neighbors, and everyone who loves this great university coming together,” Ahrens said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to have a whole lot of fun while seeing old friends, making new ones, and supporting USF.”
All proceeds from Brahman Bash 2016 go toward the Alumni Association’s mission to connect alumni and assist in the university’s success. Sponsorship opportunities are available to area businesses interested in helping raise funds for the Association while receiving recognition at the event.
Brahman Bash is scheduled for 6-10 p.m. Saturday, March 19. Tickets are $60 each and include admission, food and beverages. Space is limited and tickets must be purchased in advance. For more information or to order tickets online, visit www.usfalumni.org/brahmanbash.
