Orange & Black Ball Recap
The 17 th  Annual Orange & Black Ball, presented by Tuleburg, was another huge success for the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF). This year’s event attracted 633 attendees and our early estimates total the gross to be $190,000 while netting roughly $100,000 for our Pacific student-athletes!  The money raised will support the PAF Impact Fund, sport-specific operations, and the Janssen-Lagorio Performance Center.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event!
