O&B Recap


2017 O&B Recap

The 2017 Orange & Black Ball presented by Pacific Construction, was another huge success selling out one month prior to the event with 700 guests in attendance and raised a record amount of $123,735 for Pacific student-athletes! This is a $23,000 increase from the 2016 Orange & Black Ball. The money raised from the event will support the PAF Impact Fund, sport-specific operations, and the new nutrition station available for all student-athletes.
The night’s festivities began with the unveiling of the beautiful, newly constructed $1.5 million Janssen-Lagorio Performance Center. The center, constructed by Pacific Construction, is the latest upgrade to Pacific Athletics facilities and will provide exercise/weight equipment for weight and conditioning training along with a fuel station providing nutritious snacks for student-athletes.
Upon arrival to this premier event, guests are greeted by student-athletes and welcomed to mingle with coaches and staff while enjoying multiple wine tasting stations, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, raffle drawing, and live entertainment.
Thank you again to everyone who was able to contribute to the Orange & Black Ball through bidding on auction items, participating in the fund-a-need campaign, or by attending the event. The event would not be a success without the involvement from all of our supporters.
