Meet The Demons Scholarship Auction set for Aug. 19

Northwestern State’s biennial “Meet the Demons” Scholarship Auction presented by BOM returns this year, taking place Aug. 19 at the Natchitoches Events Center.

Tickets for the event are available at

The schedule for the event begins at 5 p.m. and includes a social hour, dinner, live and silent auctions as well as the “Final Five Drawing.” Proceeds from the event go towards scholarships for more than 350 Northwestern State student-athletes, many of whom will be in attendance to mix and mingle with Demons and Lady Demons supporters.

“During my first year and a half at Northwestern State, I have witnessed the dedication and passion of our fan base and our supporters,” Director of Athletics Kevin Bostian said. “The scholarship auction plays a vital part of our success as a department. It is a staple of our athletic calendar and has generated a tremendous amount of money for our student-athletes’ scholarships. This event is a chance for our student-athletes to mix and mingle with our fans and show all of our appreciation for their generosity.”

The social hour runs from 5-6 p.m. ahead of dinner. The program, which includes discussions of NSU Athletics, and live auction begins at 6:45 p.m. ahead of the “Final Five” drawing at 7:45.

Tickets for the “Final Five” can be purchased online, and those who do so do not need to be present to win. The winners of the “Final Five” will gather on stage and decide whether to split the pot or to battle through a drawdown until a winner is determined.

There will be a separate raffle for prizes with tickets on sale for $10 each or three for $25. NSU student-athletes will be traversing the crowd selling the tickets.

The silent auction ends at 8 p.m. with winners announced before the closing of the event. Silent auction items will be made available for bid on Aug. 5.

Tickets are available for $75 per person or $125 per couple. Reserved tables for eight are available for $500 and there are $1,000 VIP sponsorships open as well. VIP sponsors receive premium seating for eight, recognition on and on NSU Athletics’ various social media platforms, and eight endless margarita cups. Additionally, balloons filled with gifts are available for $25 or $50.
