Fiesta Ball Week’s all for a good cause + there’s an online auction
Unfortunately, like so many other things, Fiesta Ball was cancelled last year due to the pandemic. But Fiesta Ball Week is a new form of this annual event, hosted by the Young Supporters Board, and it’s better than ever.
In addition to eating at the six local Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants, you can also participate in an online auction—no ticket required. All proceeds from the auction support the Mary Ann Harvard Young Investigator Grants at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center. The grants help early-career scientists at the O’Neal Cancer Center jump-start their research programs.
Here are just a few of the things you can bid on at the auction:
- Alabama football autographed by Coach Nick Saban 🏈
- Weekend vacation at Lake Martin 🚤
- Round of golf for two at Pursell Farms 🏌🏽♂️
- And more
