O&B Recap


2018 O&B Recap

The Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF) recently hosted its 19th annual Orange & Black Ball on August 25th at the Janssen-Lagorio Gymnasium. The longstanding annual fundraising event serves as a kickoff celebration to the new school year and provides the PAF an opportunity to gather with many of its strongest supporters in the community to acknowledge its recent accomplishments, while raising funds for the PAF in support of Pacific Athletics.

This year’s event, presented by the Ray Morgan Company, was another huge success with over 600 guests in attendance who contributed to grossing a total of $209,000, while netting over $90,000 for Pacific athletics! The money raised from the event will support the PAF Impact Fund, sport-specific operations, and equipment for the training room that will benefit all student-athletes.

Upon arrival to this premier event, guests are greeted by student-athletes and have the opportunity to mingle with coaches and staff while enjoying multiple wine and beer tasting stations, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, raffle drawing, and live entertainment.

The event was a major success for the PAF and would not be possible without the involvement from each of its sponsors including:

Ray Morgan Company (Title)
Community Foundation of San Joaquin (Silver)
Dignity Health (Silver)
F&M Bank (Silver)
Lagorio Family of Companies (Silver)

A named endowment can be established with a minimum of $50,000 and designated for a specific sport or purpose. To fully endow an athletics scholarship, a gift of more than $1,000,000 is necessary to generate the $53,000 necessary to cover the annual cost of tuition, room/board and books for a student-athlete.
