Jamestown  (UJ) Plans are underway at the University of Jamestown for the 33rd Annual Dine and Bid “Monopoly: Knight Edition.” The benefit auction will take place Saturday, April 13, 2019, in the new Harold Newman Arena on the University of Jamestown campus. A social will begin at 5:30 p.m., with dinner to follow at 6:30 p.m.

The event features the opportunity to bid on an array of unique items in silent and live auctions and the chance to win exciting raffles throughout the evening. Several unique items will be auctioned including a vacation at a beachfront home in Belize; a Mother’s Day package to New York City to see the musical Hamilton; a custom-made University of Jamestown electronic dartboard; and much more. All proceeds benefit student scholarships.


University of Jamestown students participate in the event by providing entertainment via a talent competition for a 50/50 raffle, managing valet parking, greeting attendees, serving the meal, and assisting with delivery of large auction items to buyers’ homes.


This year’s Dine and Bid will feature two emcees who have led the event for the past several years: Casey Stoudt and Warren Abrahamson (a 2013 UJ graduate). Dinner will be provided by a Sodexo executive chef. The event is open to the community. Tickets can be purchased at uj.edu/dine-and-bid.
