After a quarter century of being one of the most effective fund-raising events for the William and Mary Athletics Department, the Lord Botetourt Affair is again raising the stakes with a revised format and new venue.
On Friday, February 6th, 2015, the W&M faithful can celebrate the event’s theme of “One Tribe, One Family” and enjoy an evening of dinner, drinks and dancing amidst the world class amenities provided by Kingsmill Resort, while also participating in both a silent and live auctions. The silent auction and reception portions of the event will be held in the Burwell Plantation Room (with registration starting at 6:30pm), while the dinner, live auction and dancing will be held in the James River Grand Ballroom(starting at 8pm).
Tickets cost $160 per guest (or $85 for “young alumni” who have graduated in the last 10 years), and can be obtained by either clicking on the link in the right hand corner, or contacting Meagan Bedsaul in the Tribe Club’s Special Events office at 757.221.1552 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event annually auctions off a wide variety of quality and quirky, one-of-a-kind items and has sold out in each of the last 12 years. Another sell out is anticipated, so act quickly while availability still remains.
One special feature added for this year is the “Overtime” portion of the event, which will start at 10pm and feature a DJ, cash bar, photo booth and more.
For the discriminating Tribe fan, there is a Trophy Sponsorship option that includes a personal concierge for the evening, limo service and a total of eight tickets (or one table) for the event. Contact Ms. Bedsaul for more information on this special opportunity.
All proceeds from the Botetourt Affair go directly to the Tribe Club. Since the William and Mary Athletics Department receives no state funding, the Tribe depends on its many alumni, friends and corporate partners to provide our student-athletes with a first-class athletics experience.
