On Friday night we had our Faculty Auction, an annual event where professors and faculty donate events and groups of MBA students bid on them. All of the proceeds go to the Walt Blacconiere College Fund, which honors the memory of a beloved Kelley School of Business accounting professor who died of pancreatic cancer in 2007.
Some examples of events:
- Basketball game of five students versus five professors
- Wine and cheese with Dean Smith and Jonlee Andrews
- A Super Bowl party for 50 first-years at the home of Wayne Winston
- "Owning" MBA program chair Phil Powell for 8 hours
Now we just have to figure out what to do with him...
