BHSU Comeback Extravaganza

Gustave Karinen 0 275
On August 22, 2020, BHSU will be hosting the BHSU Comeback Extravaganza at Lyle Hare Stadium. The event is replacing this year’s Annual Scholarship Gala and the previously postponed 4th Annual Gold Rush Raffle & Auction that was scheduled for April 25. We are merging the event to make one great evening of fun while raising scholarship dollars. Social hour will begin at six with the dinner/raffle and auction starting at seven p.m. All CDC guidelines and social distancing protocols will be followed.

The night will take on more of a “pep rally” theme where we will all celebrate our BHSU pride. There will be the same elements of the Scholarship Gala, but will now include the Reverse Raffle (*Chance to win $5,000 that the Gold Rush Raffle typically offers). This is a great opportunity to interact with and get to know scholarship recipients. This celebration hopes to aid in coming back together from recent events stronger as a community.

Last year, the 2019 Gala fundraiser raised a record $164,000 for student scholarships and the Gold Rush Raffle & Auction netted over $47,000 for student-athlete scholarships. We are so thankful for your contributions, continued support, and loyalty to the BHSU Family. BHSU and the Spearfish community hope that we can return to somewhat normalcy for the upcoming year. We anticipate that this event will be the spark we need to assist in “Returning to Normal”. Tickets are $125 each and includes dinner, program and a chance to win $5,000.
