The Huskies will descend on the new Halifax Convention Centre on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Saint Mary’s University Huskies Super Auction.

For 20 years, Huskies enthusiasts, fans, friends and family have supported athletic excellence at Saint Mary’s University. The auction is an important tradition at Saint Mary’s, a tradition that helps Saint Mary’s high-performance student-athletes to excel at their sport of choice and in their academic endeavours.

“The fact that we are celebrating the 20th year of this event is in itself a testimony to its success through the widespread support the auction receives from our community at large,” said Dr. John S. Fitzpatrick, Q.C., BA’81, and former Chair and Vice-Chair of the Saint Mary’s University Board of Governors. “Our student-athletes derive a great benefit from this amazing event.  Not only does it provide financial support to our athletes, but it also provides them with an opportunity to meet many of our alumni.  We are proud of all of our student-athletes, particularly those Academic All Canadian Athletes who somehow find the time to compete at a very high level and also achieve academic excellence.”

Over the years, the super auction has seen a variety of great items up for auction. From replica Don Cherry suits to custom-made SMU Huskies fireplaces, the best way to find out what’s up for auction is to attend.

“I am coming for the first time now as our family company, Minuteman Press, is now a sponsor of my old stomping grounds. We printed the tickets for the event and other items for the evening,” said super auction newcomer, Chantal Maheux-Webster, BComm'04, General Manager of Minutemen Press. “Being an alumna and after working with the university to help with their printing and signage needs, I became more familiar with the event and what a great event it is. I questioned ‘why I have missed it all these years?’, I am looking forward to it.”
