Join us for the DanceBlue Silent Auction

The DanceBlue Silent Auction is back!

Save the date for the DanceBlue Silent Auction in partnership with the UK Alumni Association! This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, October 16th from 6:00-9:00 pm in the Woodford Reserve Room at Kroger Field. For the first time, DanceBlue will be partnering with the University of Kentucky Alumni Association to expand one of our favorite nights of the year. This year’s auction will be a hybrid event and online bidding will open on Monday, October 4th. Online bidding will remain open and will close during the live event. A few examples up for auction include vacation stays, signed UK memorabilia, UK tickets, and handcrafted artwork. Additionally, we are excited to partner with the Alumni Association to auction off alcohol at the live event. Stop by their table to bid on a variety of everyday and allocated bottles from your favorite Kentucky distilleries! The Silent Auction has been an integral fundraising event for our clinic and the families it serves, and we would greatly appreciate your attendance as we join together to fight pediatric cancer. Tickets can be bought at the Ticket Center in the Gatton Student Center or using the button below, tickets go on sale starting Wednesday, September 15th. Additionally, the online bidding site will be linked when live.
