Bryan Batt invites you to the Hullabaloo Auction

NEW ORLEANS -The Helluva Hullabaloo online auction is once again under way and fans of all ages have the opportunity to bid immediately more than 100 items of some of the greatest collegiate and professional opportunities. The auction features some of the top sports teams and venues, lunches and dinners with celebrities and coaches and a chance to visit some of the top golf and tennis facilities in the nation.

No matter where they live, Tulane supporters can't miss out on the auction because it's also held online on CharityBuzz.com. All proceeds received from the online auction and the Helluva Hullabaloo will go to support Tulane Student-Athletes through Tulane Empowers.

Among the items up for bid are premier travel packages to London, France for a week-long stay at a French Chateau home and the popular wine country in Sonoma, Calif.; a trip to Argentina for dove hunting, tickets to the New Orleans Saints games and Manchester United matches, the Allstate Sugar Bowl, and the always-anticipated U.S. Open and golf trips to top-flight courses.

Also available are a ride in the Orpheus Mardi Gras parade, trips with Tulane University athletic teams, a cookout with Coach Curtis "CJ" Johnson and Saints receiver Marques Colston hosted at Rick Dickson's house, along with incredible autographed memorabilia and NFL packages.

For those looking for fame and music experiences, the auction offers an exclusive lunch in Los Angeles with Doug Ellin, creator of HBO's Entourage, dinner and theatre with actress Blythe Danner or concert tickets to Pink or Rihanna.

Bidders should note the statement, "The proceeds for this item benefit Tulane University" on the bottom right hand side of the bid page before making a bid.

The online auction is a pre-cursor to the incredible 11th annual Helluva Hullabaloo Auction and Party, which takes place Friday, November 2, from 6-8:30 p.m. on the Tulane campus at the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life.
