Partygoers had a hell of a night at Tulane University’s Hellava Hullabaloo event on October 8 at the Lavin-Bernick University Center. The event, chaired by Jill and Avie Glazer, Betsy and Gary Laborde and Maria and Andy Wisdom, benefitted Tulane student-athletes.

The auction, led by celebrity auctioneer Lee Zurik, featured such exciting highlights as 2011 U.S. Open tennis tournament tickets, a VIP Manchester United Experience at Carrington, a Super Bowl XLV raffle, an Acapulco vacation retreat, a Saints/Falcons Fan Package, a Sonoma wine tasting and tour, tickets to the American Idol finale, a two-hour dinner with Olivia and Archie Manning and a Royal Caribbean International cruise.

The event also featured an online auction through CharityBuzz from October 5-25, which featured items such as a lunch and tour of New Orleans with James Carville and Mary Matalin. Guests enjoyed food from local restaurants, live music and presentations from Scott Cowen, president of Tulane University, and Rick Dickson, director of athletics.
