Every year the annual Ladies Only Champagne Bingo is held to raise money to benefit a specific SAU athletic program. Months of preparation make this event a top notch fundraiser that is always eagerly anticipated, much talked about, and highly successful. Past events have been so highly regarded that the Champagne Bingo won the prestigious Gold Award in 2012 for Overall Best New Alumni Program from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District IV.
Champagne Bingo brings together a wonderful, diverse group from our community. The event brings increased visibility to the SAU Alumni Association through newspaper articles, word of mouth, and social media. The event targets ladies and businesses to sponsor tables; this ensures not only a diverse group of people, but it also helps to foster new relationships. As a result, the alumni director and staff are able to form relationships with the business women in the community, the students in the athletic organization, as well as reconnect with SAU alumni, family, and friends.
The Champagne Bingo event has a different theme each year, and members of the specific athletic program that is to benefit from the funds serve as the waiters.
