A Night To Remember

By all accounts, the 4th Annual Hall of Fame Benefit at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency was another successful event. The evening began with a silent auction as attendees made their way to each table in search of sports memorabilia, trips, dinners, and countless other items. Guests returned to their favorite silent auction items to see if their bids had been outdone and to provide some gentle ribbing to others considering an offer.

In another part of the venue, guests had their photos taken with the evening's special guest speaker, Steve Largent. The all-pro wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks graciously signed autographs and posed for photos that would eventually make their way to living room shelves and office walls throughout the Northwest.

When it was time for dinner, guests enjoyed dinner and had the chance to spend time with family, friends, and colleagues. NU athletes from an earlier era heard cheers once again as they took the stage to be honored as the 2014 Hall of Fame inductees. The audience hushed as Steve Largent took the stage and told more than 400 attendees about what has been happening in his life since retiring from the Seahawks and Congress.

Once the auction began, paddles were raised up and down like fans as good-natured guests competed from table to table. When the paddles came to rest and the evening ended, over $88,000 was raised for NU sports teams and athletic scholarships. We'd like to offer a heartfelt thanks to all Hall of Fame participants. Because of your support, NU athletes will continue to receive the kind of Christ-centered education that changes lives.
