UM Alumni Association Hosts Second Annual Boots to Beaches Fundraiser

January 20, 2016

MISSOULA – The University of Montana Alumni Association invites the UM community to escape the cold Montana winter – if only for an evening – at the second annual Boots to Beaches fundraiser, slated for 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, at the Holiday Inn Downtown Missoula.

The lakeside-party-themed evening will feature live and silent auctions, food and beverages, music, entertainment and prizes.

Auction items include a round of golf with Montana Grizzlies head football coach Bob Stitt, one-half beef from Big Sky Natural Beef, lift tickets for Whitefish Mountain Resort and more. All proceeds will benefit the UM Alumni Association, an organization that reaches out to more than 105,000 UM alumni and friends, helping them stay connected to the University and each other through events, programs and services such as Homecoming and Commencement reunions, alumni awards and career mentoring.

The public is invited to attend, and summer attire is encouraged. Tickets are $25 per person. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the UM Alumni Association at 406-243-5211.
