Baseball announces cancellation of annual Gala and Auction
The annual JU Baseball Gala and Auction, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 16 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, has been cancelled for 2009 due to unforeseen circumstances.
Due to the serious health issues facing Curtis Alexander, father of JU head coach Terry Alexander, the event will be replaced by a drawing for one-of-a-kind Major League Baseball experience on the East Coast involving multiple games, cities and teams.
Information on a drawing, which will serve as an opportunity to enhance the Curtis and Connie Alexander Baseball Fund and make a significant difference in the future of the JU baseball program, will be released shortly as details are finalized.
For any questions regarding the cancellation of the Gala and Auction or the upcoming drawing, please contact Nikki Swanson in the JU Athletic Department at (904) 256-7444.
