2019 Brunson Hall of Fame Banquet and Awards Night

The 2019 Brunson Hall of Fame Banquet and Auction will be held on October 7th, 2019 at 6:00pm in the UVU Ballroom. The Ballroom is located in the Sorensen Student Center. This night we will be honoring two Utah wrestling greats as well as recognizing many of our youth for their wrestling accomplishments. We will also be raising money for the Utah Valley University wrestling team with an auction. Come for a fun night of honoring our Utah wrestlers and help us raise money for the only collegiate wrestling program in the state!

Tickets for the dinner and auction are $35 per person or $300 for a table (10 seats/table). Ticket prices will increase to $40 per person on September 28th. Tickets can be purchased by following the link below.

This year we will again offer Valet Parking provided by the UVU Wrestlers. You may use this service by pulling into the parking garage where you will be met by the UVU Wrestlers/Valet. They will take and park your car while you head to the banquet. (tips are appreciated, but not required)

All money raised at this event will go to support the UVU Wrestling Team.
