The Natchitoches Events Center was the place to be as over 350 NSU Demon fans packed the house for the annual Meet the Demons-Athletic Scholarship Auction August 20. A line of pom-poms, cheering athletes and spirit groups greeted the attendees as they arrived. The dinner and auction is the signature fundraiser for the Demons Unlimited Foundation, which assists the university’s athletic department. The foundation is an indispensable part of Demon athletics and provides significant assistance to NSU for athletic scholarships each year. Donors provided over 125 items to be put up for the highest bidder in live and silent auctions.
The donors are a diverse cross section of supporters, ranging from local businesses and fans to alumni playing in the NFL. They truly represent the broad reach of the university and the loyalty it inspires. NSU fields several hundred athletes, all of whom compete in the NCAA’s Division I. The university sponsors 14 sports, a significant achievement for a university of NSU’s size.
The event is expected to generate over $75,000.00 for Demon Athletics.
