Orange & Black Ball Breaks Record For Most Money Raised in History of Event

The 16th Annual Orange & Black Ball, presented by the Paulsen Family, played host to 651 attendees and has been considered by many to be the best ever. While the fundraising and expense numbers are still being compiled, we are very excited to announce estimates that show the total gross to be $201,000 while netting roughly $107,000 for our Pacific student-athletes! This marks the most successful Orange & Black Ball that the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF) has put on to date. The money raised will support the PAF Impact Fund, sport-specific operations, and the Cedric and June Dempsey Center for Academic Excellence.
