Chair and member of the board at Tulane University Jill Glazer organized the 12th annual “Helluva Hullabaloo Auction and Party” to great success on October 4 at Tulane University’s Lavin-Berneck Center at the Uptown campus. Celebrity auctioneer Bryan Batt did the honors at the casual and crazy fun party that coincided with Tulane’s homecoming weekend. Over 400 Tulane supporters and alumni attended the auction, including Tulane President Scott Cowen, Tulane Board Chair Daryl Berger and several board and president’s council members. Olive Blue Catering served delicious treats, while outside the homecoming fireworks provided the accompaniment.

The auction was the highlight of the evening, with silent, live and online portions. Choice items included a tour of the set of popular British period drama, “Downton Abbey,” tickets to Broadway hit Kinky Boots, a stay at a chateau in the Perigord region of France, tickets to the New York Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November and tickets to the 2014 Super Bowl. The theme, of course, was Tulane’s Green Wave.
