FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas Athletics Department will host its annual Razorback Red Tie Dinner and Auction Saturday, Jan. 31, 2009. This year marks the 12th year the Razorbacks have honored a student-athlete but the first as a unified athletic department. Each year, the Razorbacks recognized a student-athlete or athletes whose performance throughout his or her career serves to lift up their sport to new heights and whose character exemplifies the goals of the athletic department. Recent recipients include woman’s golfer Stacy Lewis, woman’s basketball player Sarah Pfieffer and soccer player Allison Harris. In addition to the dinner, attendees will enjoy a social hour before dinner as well as live and silent auctions. This year’s event takes place at the Embassy Suites in Rogers, Ark., and tickets are available to the general public for $100 each. In addition, table sponsorships are available.
