Scholarship Auction

Did Someone Say Saban-Autographed Football?

Did Someone Say Saban-Autographed Football?

Yes, we did! Join us online for our scholarship auction Aug 12-16. A Saban personally-autographed football is just one of the fabulous Bama-related sports memorabilia and books you can win. You'll also find great home and party goods, fashion accessories, art, and more.

Winning bidders will have the option to pick up their items or have them shipped anywhere in the USA (details below). So please, share the auction website with your friends and family via social media when it goes live, here on our website, on Aug. 12.

All proceeds go directly to our chapter's scholarship endowments. Scholarship awards benefit Houston-area students attending The University of Alabama.

Our auction goal is $5,000. Please join in the fun and bid. Or "Make A Donation" on the auction website to help us reach our goal.

Bidding opens on Wednesday, Aug 12 at 7 am. Bidding closes on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 7 pm.

See below for details on how the auction works.
