In Year 2 (Week 3) of BIDS On-Line Auctions we once again raised money, which benefited our scholarship funds.
B.I.D.S. stands for Blue Demon Authentic On-line Auctions In Support of DePaul Athletics Scholarships. The auction site is a partnership between DePaul University Athletics and its website provider cbssports.com. Year 2 (Week 4) features some recent game-worn items, commemorative Ray Meyer poster signed by Mark Aguirre and a unique limited edition men's basketball warm up (DePaul Commemorative 350th Anniversary Patch).
In addition, this week's auction is featuring items from the "Who's Next" commercial shoot. Two commercials were filmed this summer under the idea of linking players of the past to the 2012-13 Blue Demons. Former DePaul players Mark Aguirre, Steven Hunter, Quentin Richardson and Bobby Simmons were featured in the two commercials along with current Blue Demons Jamee Crockett, Charles McKinney, Cleveland Melvin, Moses Morgan and Brandon Young.
To participate in B.I.D.S., bidders will have to register prior to submitting bids. All proceeds from the on-line auctions will benefit DePaul athletic scholarships.
As a special incentive for bidders, all winning bidders of more than $100 will receive a complimentary Ray Meyer commemorative coin, which was minted in 2006-07 to memorialize the DePaul legend and to support the scholarship in his name.
