Chris Spielman to headline Spring for Scholarships Dinner and Auction
Tickets are now available for the Ohio State Lima’s Eighth Annual Spring for Scholarships Dinner and Auction, Mon., May 9, 2011, at the Shawnee Country Club. Doors open at 6 p.m. A special Sponsors Reception will be held from 5-6 p.m.
The guest speaker will be Chris Spielman, a former All-American linebacker at Ohio State and professional football player and current college football analyst for ESPN. Spielman and his wife Stefanie established The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research after Stefanie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998. Her fight with the disease ended in 2009. The Spielman’s leadership and public commitment to the fight against breast cancer has resulted in overwhelming support from friends, associates, and well-wishers around Ohio and across the country. Over the years, more than $8.5 million has been raised to support the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research and the Stefanie Spielman Patient Assistance Fund.
A variety of auction items, including Ohio State memorabilia, jewelry and other special gifts, will be available in either the silent or live auction. Tickets are $50 for individuals and include dinner. Several sponsorship levels are also available. Proceeds from the evening support Ohio State Lima student scholarships.
Seating is limited. For tickets, call the Office of Development at (419) 995-8623.
