The Blue & Gold Gala is held each year at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse to help fund all MSU student-athlete scholarships. Please plan to join us Friday, October 22, for an evening to include a hosted cocktail hour, dinner and a silent and live auction dedicated to celebrating Bobcat Athletics. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on and win one-of-a-kind Montana State University memorabilia, trips and experiences, as well as a variety of items from around the Bozeman community.
