Over $40,000 Raised During 12th Annual Charity Sports Auction
The Sport Management (SPM) Club in Falk College has announced that it raised $42,900 for the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center as a result of its 12th Annual Charity Sports Auction. During the SU men’s basketball game on Dec. 10, supporters placed bids on hundreds of items, including sports memorabilia, electronics and tickets to major sporting events. In conjunction with the live event, Steiner Sports also hosted an online auction, which showcased a number of premium items up for bid.
“As a result of months of hard work on behalf of nearly 100 Syracuse University students, we’ve attained our second highest total in the 12-year history of this event,” says Kate Veley, SPM Club co-advisor. “It wouldn’t have been possible without the many products and services generously donated by the Syracuse community, and later bid on by thousands of SU fans. Our thanks to everyone who through their gifts, have allowed us to perpetuate this event in support of the community our students call home.”
“McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center is so proud of the Sport Management Club students for the amazing job they did with their charity auction,” says McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center Executive Director Linda Cleary. “We were honored to be selected as the beneficiary of the charity auction and be able to be a part of it. Congratulations to the students on a job well done! Thank you for helping us put children on a path to healing.”

The organization offers a safe, child-friendly process for abused children and their families, supported by a committed, professional team specializing in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse.
