A Benefit for All Our Sports Programs
The Corbett Boosters’ 8th Annual Red & Black auction and dinner will be held on Saturday, March 15, 2014. If you’ve attended Corbett’s premiere sports fundraiser in the past, you’ve seen how the event has grown. If this will be your first year attending, we hope you enjoy the excitement of the evening and the incredible sense of pride we have in our athletes and athletic programs. This year, our gym will send you back to ‘A Masquerade Ball’ as our theme, and keeping with tradition, our high school athletes will serve the guests a delicious meal especially selected and prepared for you by one of Bugatti Restaurants’ Corporate chefs (Menu to come).
We hope you’re feeling ‘lucky’ from the moment you walk in with 3 silent auction closings and the excitement and exhilaration that our auctioneer Brad Caldwell (returning for his 7th Red & Black Auction) brings to the event. Don’t lose the ‘chance’ to play our ever popular Wine Toss and purchase a ticket or two and try to win the ‘lucky’ Golden Ticket. Two auction events you won’t want to miss!

Why we do it:
The Red & Black Auction and Benefit Dinner is the single largest fundraiser for Corbett athletics. Approximately 500 athletes from Kindergartners through Seniors will participate in sports completely funded through the Corbett Boosters and Corbett Youth Sports this school year. Since the school district cut all funds for athletics, the Boosters/CYS have stepped up to provide the finances needed to maintain the storied sports’ traditions of our fine community. An average of $210,000 is needed annually for athletics to continue. An Evening with Red & Black is your opportunity to help ensure the future of Corbett’s sports programs is strong and financially sound. We look forward to seeing you at this wonderful evening!
