Good Morning:

It's time to come home. Tulane alumni and parents of current Tulane students from around the country and world will return to campus next week for reunions, football, fireworks, special speakers, art exhibitions, brunches, the Rebirth Brass Band and so much more.

At the top of the list of the must-do Homecoming events is the annual Helluva Hullabaloo Auction and Party, which benefits Tulane's student-athletes. Last year, this event raised $600,000 and produced a lifetime of good memories. The success of the auction is due largely to the efforts of board member and Tulane alumnus Jill Glazer, who has transformed the Helluva Hullabaloo Auction into one of the city's premier fundraisers. Her dedication is remarkable, invaluable and greatly appreciated, especially by our student-athletes. 

This year's auction items include weeklong getaways to vacation homes in France and England, lunch with Blythe Danner, tickets to Saturday Night Live, Ellen, a Live with Jimmy Kimmel VIP experience that includes green room passes, VIP passes to TODAY's summer concert series, one-of-a-kind dining experiences such as dinner for 20 in one of Galatoire's private rooms, autographed sports memorabilia including a football signed by Jimmy Graham, a Manchester United VIP experience, passes to the owner's suite for the Saints vs. Atlanta game and Super Bowl XLVII tickets. You can start bidding online now. Make sure you see the statement, "The proceeds for this item benefit Tulane University," on the bottom right hand side of the bid page before you make your bid.

There are so many good things to say about the auction, I really need an advertising executive to assist me and I know just the person. Check this out:


Have a great weekend,
