The Patriot Duckie was just one giveaway that was given to those who bought tickets to GBAY

There are some things you can’t buy on eBay — like better parking spots, or the chance to create and name your own food on campus. But, you can buy it at GBay.

The third-annual student benefit auction was held Thursday March 1 at the Johnson Center. Tickets were $5 in advance and $7 at the door — and raised more than $5,600 for the Mason Scholarship fund.

The sold items like a signed Sergei Federov hockey stick and an autographed Torrey Smith football — and experiences like lunch with Coach Paul Hewitt.

In three years, the event has raised almost $25,000 in scholarship money.

“Maybe in the future we can set up a GBAY scholarship,” says one of the event organizers, Mark Mansdoerfer, a 20-year-old Business Management and Accounting major from Lunberton, N.J.
