Thank you all for your support.
On behalf of our coaches, student-athletes and the Board of Directors of the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF), I want to say thank you for your contribution to the 2013Orange & Black Ball, held at the Janssen-Lagorio Gymnasium on the evening of Sat., August 24. Through the sale of silent and live auction items, as well as raffle ticket sales, this year's Ball raised a total of $160,825, the best fundraising total in the fourteen year history of the event. Proceeds from this year's event provided direct financial support for our Intercollegiate athletics program in two ways: 1) our teams received all of the funds from the sale of their designated auction items, and 2) the remainder of the proceeds were added to the PAF Scholarship Fund in support of our student-athletes.We had 640 people in attendance at this year's Ball and everyone seemed to have a great time! Plans are already in place to make things even better and more fun next year. Please be sure to "Save the Date" for the 2014 Orange & Black Ball, which will be held on Sat., August 23, 2014. Your generosity truly helped to make this wonderful event possible and all of us in the Athletic Department are extremely grateful for your involvement. Thanks again for your fantastic support! 

Don't forget to show your support of the Tigers and wear your colors every Friday! 

Until next week, Go Tigers!

Ted Leland
Athletic Director
