Thanks to their winning bid at the Helluva Hullabaloo Auction, Tulane alumni Dr. Bob Gold, his wife, Gail, and son, Peter, have golden memories of spending an evening with football great Archie Manning and his wife, Olivia, at the Tulane president’s home.

Sports-related experiences are just one of many items featured in the 11th annual auction and party on Nov. 2 in the Lavin-Bernick Center on the Tulane uptown campus, starting at 6 p.m. The auction also kicks off its online event on Oct. 18 on Charitybuzz.com.
