Prime Duke vs. Michigan Basketball Tickets To Be Auctioned During Preservation Party
Four third-row tickets will join the Silent Auction line-up at Preservation Durham’s annual fundraiser.
October 29, 2013 (Durham, NC) -- Tallman Trask, Duke University’s Executive Vice President and a member of the Preservation Durham, Inc., board of directors, is donating his personal set of four tickets to the Duke vs. Michigan University men’s basketball game on December 3 for the Preservation Party fundraiser on November 8 at Morgan Imports in downtown Durham.
Free and open to the public, the annual Preservation Party includes a silent auction. Thanks to Trask, the 2013 partygoers will be able to bid on these tickets -- for excellent seats on the third row, on even with Cameron Indoor Stadium’s eastern goal – during the party. The minimum bid will be $2000. According to Ticketnetwork.com, tickets of this type for this game range from $700-$800 each.
“We’re delighted and honored by Mr. Trask’s generous donation for seats that would be nearly impossible to get otherwise," said Wendy Hillis, Preservation Durham's Executive Director. "Die-hard Duke fans need to save the date for the Party and try to win those tickets!”
Other Duke men’s basketball tickets will be up for auction during the Party without a minimum bid.
The Preservation Party is a major, annual fundraiser for Preservation Durham, the non-profit membership organization dedicated to preserving Durham’s architectural heritage. The party will include a variety of foods donated by area restaurants, beverages, live entertainment, the Silent Auction, and shopping at Morgan Imports. All of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Preservation Durham’s efforts and programs. Ten percent of Morgan Import’s sales that evening will also go to Preservation Durham.
Morgan Imports is located at 113 South Gregson Street, Durham, NC 27701. For directions visit www.morganimports.com.
