VERMILLION, S.D. (KWSN)—Friday’s Calling All Coyotes event at the Sioux Falls Convention Center raised more than $152,000 which will help support South Dakota student-athletes.

The night included silent and live auctions, live music from The Hegg Brothers, drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dinner. An Oregon football trip, a Nantucket Getaway, tickets to the 2015 Masters Golf Tournament and a trip to the 2015 Final Four were a few of the items sold during the auction. More than 500 people attended the event, which included 25 student-athletes and 40 USD coaches and staff members.

“We had two goals heading into the night, said USD Associate Athletic Director Jon Schemmel. “One was to raise more than $100,000 for student-athlete scholarships. The other was to create an event that people would want to come back to. We accomplished both of those goals.”

“The interactions between the attendees and the student-athletes were priceless,” added USD Athletic Director David Herbster. “We also had alumni from around the nation who not only attended the event, but participated in the night through mobile bidding, which was great.”
