More people have bid on dinner and a round of golf with John Beilein than John Calipari

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 6 years


Last week, we told you about an awesome charity auction for the American Cancer Society in which fans can bid on dinner and a round of golf with ten of the best coaches in college basketball, including John Calipari. The auction opened on April 13 and the price of dinner and a round of golf with Cal started at $10,000. A week later, the highest bid is only $13,000. The minimum increment is $1,000, so that means a maximum of three people have bid on it so far, which is kind of insane. Even more ridiculous? So far, more people have bid on dinner and golf with Steve Alford, John Beilein, Tom Izzo, and Bob Huggins than John Calipari. That's practically a crime, right? If you have $14,000+ to spare, here are all the details to make a dream weekend come true:
The winning bidder and two guests will attend a private dinner on Sunday, May 31 with all 10 renowned college basketball coaches. Each guest will enjoy a one night stay at MotorCity Casino Hotel, Detroit’s AAA Four Diamond Award-winning hotel featuring a luxury spa, great dining, and the hottest gaming in town. Monday afternoon, the winner and their two guests will tee off in a round of non-competitive golf with John Calipari at Oakland Hills Country Club (host of six U.S. Opens, three PGA Championships, the 2004 Ryder Cup, and the future host of the 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship). Following an amazing day of golf, guests will enjoy dinner at the course.
The auction closes on May 1 and all proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. Click here to start bidding.
