Boogie Gives Fans One-Of-A-Kind Opportunity

Phog.net has the inside scoop on the party of the summer – Bill's Basketball Boogie. It's your chance to celebrate a national championship, take home some one-of-a-kind memorabilia, dance, drink, and help out a great cause.

It will be the happening party of the summer in the Kansas City area.  

Bill and Cindy Self cordially invite you to Bill’s Basketball Boogie, June 7th at Kansas Speedway. It’s your chance to eat, drink, and dance for a good cause. All the proceeds benefit their Assists Foundation.

But wait. There’s more.

It’s a chance for you to celebrate KU’s national championship with Kansas coaches and players, plus you’ll rub shoulders with celebrities and KU alumni. The dance floor will be an Allen Fieldhouse replica court. The music will come from Sawyer Brown, and Disco Dick and the Mirrorballs. The tickets do come with a warning though: bring comfortable shoes because there will be plenty of dancing. There might even be a special performance. Let’s just say you’ll also see some of your KU favorites in a brand new light - surprises await all those who attend.  

One-Of-A-Kind Memorabilia*****

The Boogie will give KU fans the chance to bid on memorabilia they won’t find anywhere else in live and silent auctions. It’s every diehard KU fan’s dream come true. Items that allow you even more than bragging rights!

LIVE AUCTION ITEMS
You could leave the Speedway with a Final Four Package - a special collection of memoirs of KU’s title to call your own. Its part of the live auction and it’s your chance to own a courtside chair, a piece of the court, a strand of the net, a program, and an autographed picture of Coach Self.

For those of you into jewelry how about a chance at your very own National Championship ring?

1992, 1923, 1952, 1988, 2008 -- KU owns five national titles and you could own a collage of jerseys from all five Most Outstanding Players. Wilt, Born, Lovellette, Manning, and Mario all included.

Coach Self and his wife Cindy will also host a private party at their home for you and seven of your friends. Evan Williams Catering will provide the food but you’ll get to know Coach Self and his staff even better if you’re lucky enough to win this auction item.  
Want to be a special guest at the ESPY’s? It’s a first class trip with hotel and airfare included to Los Angeles’ brand new Nokia theatre. KU is nominated for three different awards and you could have your own set of tickets (2) plus an invitation to the after party which includes a who’s-who of the sports world.  

Remember when Michael Jordan returned to the NBA and donned the number 45? There are only THREE of these autographed jerseys worn by MJ in the world. One resides in the Hall of Fame, Michael has one, and one will be auctioned off June 7th at Bill’s Basketball Boogie. It could be yours.

For the diehard KU fan…be there when the season begins and spend Late Night with Bill. You’ll be handed an itinerary to remember starting with two tickets for reserved premium seating for Late Night in mid-October. You’ll dine in the Naismith room with players and coaches. Oh by the way, it doesn’t stop with Late Night. You’ll get two tickets for every home game plus a parking pass for the 2008-2009 season, and just to keep you in the KU hoops mood, you’ll take home a signed basketball from all the players.

But even before Late Night happens, how about a trip to Canada with Coach Self and the 2008-2009 Jayhawks? Two lucky winners will accompany the team to Ontario, Canada August 29-September 1. You’ll stay at the team hotel and join the guys for a team meal.

SILENT AUCTION ITEMS
The silent auction is also jam-packed with more one-of-a-kind memorabilia. These are just some of the highlights.

- an autographed Sports Illustrated cover from Mario Chalmers.
- jerseys signed by Dwayne Wade and Shaquille O’Neal.
- a pair of autographed shoes from Greg Ostertag.
- chance to win groceries for a year
- tickets to the Self’s suite for the KU-KState football game
- a Garmin Navigation system
- for football fans, or Dancing with the Stars fans, there’s an autographed Jason Taylor helmet.

And one more thing…Would you like to be a part of NBC’s newest reality show? There will be a casting call for “Momma’s Boy”, Executive Producer Ryan Seacrest’s latest show. NBC is searching for moms who are ready to help their eligible son pick the right woman.  

Now that you’ve heard the details and seen the auction items you understand why 1,000 people are expected to attend the party of the summer. The good news is that you still have a chance to be a part of it. Some tables are still available and individual tickets are still available. You won’t want to miss a unique experience you’d never be able to replicate anywhere else. If you’re a KU fan there’s no better place to be than Bill’s Basketball Boogie, June 7th, at Kansas Speedway.
