In 2015, NIU Athletics committed to awarding scholarships that include cost-of-attendance. Through cost of attendance, our student-athletes have additional resources (stipends) above and beyond room, board, books and tuition. These resources aid them in their adjustment of being a college student while having time demands that make it difficult for them to have a job to supplement their reasonable living expenses.

For NIU coaches and programs, cost of attendance allows the ability to recruit and retain premier student-athletes that will continue the storied tradition of NIU Athletics.

All proceeds from Victor E. Ball support cost of attendance scholarships.

Whether or not you are able to attend this special event, we hope you will consider a monetary donation toward cost of attendance.

Thank You for your support!

THANK YOU for visiting the fourth annual Victor E. Ball event registration and silent auction where all proceeds go directly to support NIU Athletics' Campaign To Sustain Cost of Attendance initiative!

Registration to attend the event is now open. The Silent Auction will go live on April 12 at 8:00 a.m. CST.

Join us, along with returning emcee, Dave Kaplan, for a special night to raise funds for student-athlete cost of attendance scholarships.

Hear from our VIP guests, Fergie Jenkins (Chicago Cubs) and Katrina Adams (Professional Tennis Player and Immediate Past President of the US Tennis Association), along with our very own Coach Thomas Hammock, and, of course, our student-athletes testimonials.

The evening will feature a cocktail reception hosted by Acquaviva Winery, silent auction, dinner provided by My Chef (Naperville), live auction (exclusive for those in attendance), and a special performance, to round out this festive evening, by the Windy City Dueling Pianos.

If you are unable to attend and/or do not see an item you wish to bid on, please consider supporting this fundraising initiative by registering and submitting a donation on line or by sponsoring a student-athlete to attend.

Go Huskies!
