– Dinner for six, prepared by a Florida Tech chef aboard a private yacht, and tickets for four with limousine transportation to an Orlando Magic game, with
dinner at Boheme, are two of several auction items at Florida Tech’s annual Sporting Affair. The live auction takes place March 20 at Florida Tech’s
Sporting Affair Dinner, 6:30 to 10 p.m., in the Clemente Center for Sports and Recreation.
Sporting Affair also offers the Panther Invitational Golf Tournament that day, from 8 a.m. to noon at Suntree Country Club, and the “Chopper Dropper” on
March 19. All Sporting Affair events support Florida Tech Department of Athletics student scholarships.
For the Chopper Dropper, a $50 donation will give a donor one numbered golf ball, or one chance of winning. Among the numbered balls that will rain down
from a helicopter onto the Suntree Country Club golf course will be one lucky ball that lands in or closest to the cup. That ball will win 50 percent of
the Chopper Dropper proceeds for its sponsor-up to $25,000. The winner will be announced at the Sporting Affair Dinner.
Other auction items include packages for Boston Red Sox baseball and Tampa Bay Buccaneers football games.
