SDSU Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction

It’s one of the largest events we decorate for all year — 69 tables full of SDSU alumni and donors.

It’s one of the largest student-athlete scholarship fundraising events all year — over $1.1 million raised in one evening between silent auction items and live auction items.

Hitch Studio was proud sponsor the SDSU Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction, providing the table decor for all guest tables and the registration table. Hitch is an event stylist company, located in Brookings, SD — and we came with a table full of SDSU graduates at the event! The theme was “Lights, Camera, Auction!” and we played it up, using old film reels borrowed from a South Dakota theatre as focal points of our tablescapes. The event took on an “Oscars” type feel, with gold sequins, glam prizes, and even “awards” handed out to the highest live auction bidder, winning them a wine glass “gold trophy” and a photo with Mike Daum, the evening’s keynote speaker and star student athlete.

We were proud to work alongside Aramark, Party Depot, and Prairie Blue Floral Designs for the linens, gold sequin runners, and fresh flower arrangements to really make the tables perfect. We chose white linens this year with royal blue napkins and plenty of yellow and gold in the middle of the tables to promote the Jackrabbit spirit.
