24th Annual Bluejay Jamboree Celebration a Big Success

The 24th Bluejay Jamboree dinner and auction—the Creighton Department of Athletics’ largest annual fundraiser— drew more than 625 people and raised more than $400,000 for Creighton athletics. This year’s event, chaired by Mike and Dana Meyer and honorary chairs Joe and Amy Moglia, was themed “When All the Pieces Fit” and was held Nov. 6 in D. J. Sokol Arena inside the Wayne and Eileen Ryan Athletic Center on campus.

The Jamboree also brought in more than $125,000 to fund a student-athlete scholarship in the name of the Rev. John P. Schlegel, S. J., current Creighton president.

The Jamboree is open to all Creighton alumni, fans and friends. Most popular among many silent and live auction items up for bid were dinners with Father Schlegel and head men’s basketball coach Greg McDermott. Tom Kiefer, D.D.S., was the chairman of the committee in charge of raffle ticket sales, which raised more than $62,000.
