The Ram Good Time Auction has developed into one of the most popular traditions in support of Colorado State University Athletics.  The 2017 Ram Good Time Auction raised $250,000 for student-athlete scholarships thanks to more than 700 guests, dozens of volunteers, and many generous sponsors.  Through the years, this event has raised well over $4.5 million to benefit the scholarship fund for our student-athletes.  The dedication and generosity of Colorado State alumni, donors, and the Fort Collins community have made this event possible. On behalf of the Department of Athletics and CSU student-athletes, we thank you.  We are most appreciative of all you do for our student-athletes.

Were You Unable To Make It This Year?

For season ticket holders that missed out on the chance to secure their seats at the Ram Good Time Auction you still have the opportunity to secure the Hughes Stadium chairs that you sat in for the 2016 Rams football season! For a charitable contribution of $250 per outdoor seating from sections D, E & F or a charitable contribution of $350 per Rams Horn chairs registered under your name during the 2016 season. Contact the Sean Wheeler (970)491-7291– this opportunity will expire on Friday March 17, 2017.

Chairs will be available for pick up at Hughes Stadium at a date to be determined later in the Spring/Summer of 2017. Chair backs from the Rams Horn and/or outdoor sections D, E & F will be provided “as is”, free standing and possibly come with only one armrest depending upon the status of neighboring chairs secured via this opportunity.
