LOS ANGELES - The Lions Athletic Fund provides assistance to the annual needs of Loyola Marymount University's 22 intercollegiate teams through scholarships and team support, allowing the Lions to achieve the highest level of success both athletically and academically. In 2014-15, annual support had a record year, thanks in large part to special events held throughout the academic year.

The featured event in raising donors and funds for the Lions Athletic Fund is the annual Golf Classic and Dinner Auction. Despite the rain to start the day, the 22nd annual Golf Classic and Diner Auction featured 180 golfers and 33 sponsors. Held at Pacific Palms Golf Resort, the event features hole competitions, including a $10,000 cash prize hole-in-on and other activities with some of LMU's more than 400 student-athletes.

The tournament also features and dinner and auction following the golf, and featured such items as a Shaquille O'Neal jersey, a Jordan Spieth autographed hat, vacation getaways and more. On the day, more than $81,500 was raised for the LMU student-athletes. The event was held on May 15.
