The University of Mary Washington will hold its first athletics gala May 22 at the Jepson Alumni Executive Center in Fredericksburg to raise funds for the department.

The gala, which costs $125 for a single ticket and $1,000 for a table of 10 attendees, will offer an open bar, live music, dinner and a silent auction.

A portion of the ticket cost is tax deductible.

The evening will be hosted by NFL hall-of-famer Darrell Green, who now works with UMW as special assistant for student–athlete development and public relations.

Green will be joined at the gala by Washington Redskins DeAngelo Hall and Pierre Garçon.

The department hopes to make the gala an annual event.
