THE FLATS – Georgia Tech volleyball recently hosted its third annual auction in O’Keefe Gymnasium.

“It was so great to be able to celebrate a historic season with our friends, families, and supporters. It was great to see so many alumni back at O’Keefe and to hear about their experiences and how proud they are of our current players,” said coach Michelle Collier. “We couldn’t do what we do without the support of these amazing people, and we were so grateful to be able to share a wonderful night with them. Big shout-out also to Jill Jameson, who invested so much time and effort into making this an amazing event. Can’t wait to see everybody back in O’Keefe next fall.”

Those who attended the auction were privileged with listening to keynote speaker Jamie Weston, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of On Location. Weston is an alumna who’s risen through the ranks for a number of renowned entities such as Universal Music Group, the NFL, Esquire and Sports Illustrated, among others. Weston is currently on the Alexander-Tharpe Fund Board of Directors, a division of Georgia Tech Athletics.

The successful auction was dedicated to Michael Cohen from Leah’s Kitchen for his support of the Georgia Tech volleyball program.
