Go on a Date With Michael Mauti Tonight

Have you ever dreamt of going on a date with Penn State’s super-attractive star football linebacker, Michael Mauti? Well, now’s your chance. Held in the Hub Auditorium tonight from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., PSMA will be hosting their annual Date Auction where students are able to win a date with men and women Penn State Athletes. Members from the football, fencing, soccer, baseball, rugby, tennis, and the 2012 Olympic team will be awaiting your hopeful bid.

Make sure to scrounge up two bucks or some of that leftover change lying on your desk and you’re good for one admission (also don’t forget your student ID). Morale captains and a DJ will be at the event ensuring extra adrenaline for crowd members and contestants.

If the thought of going on a hot date with an athlete isn’t enticing enough, you should know that all proceeds are donated directly to THON. “Remember it’s all for the kids so please be generous with your donations,” said Taylor Reilly, the project manager of PSMA.
