DePaul Athletics B.I.D.S. to Benefit Scholarship Funds

1 Mar

DePaul University Athletics is auctioning authentic Blue Demon memorabilia in support of athletic scholarships. Now buying a piece of DePaul history can help give back to future generations of students.

The new online auctions, called B.I.D.S. (Blue Demon Authentic On-line Auctions In Support of DePaul Scholarships), will feature five to six regular auction items each week. Auctioned items include game-worn jerseys, autographed memorabilia and tickets to the 2012 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. All proceeds from the online auctions will benefit DePaul athletic scholarships, with the exception of special game-worn women’s pink basketball jerseys, for which 90 percent of proceeds will benefit the KAY Yow Cancer Fund.

This game-worn jersey with commemorative Rey Meyer memorial patch from the 2006-2007 season is one of many items being auctioned at B.I.D.S.

Bidders who win an auction of more than $100 will receive a complimentary Rey Meyer commemorative coin, minted in 2006-2007 to honor the DePaul legend and to support the scholarship in his name.

Participants must register prior to bidding. B.I.D.S. can be accessed through the auction section of depaulbluedemons.com or auctions.cbssports.com, the auction’s partner site.
