Even this time of year, lots of us would love to get away to a tropical beach and have a luau with friends.

Well, we can't take you away to tropical climes, but the luau with friends part is closer than you might think! And the pig will be roasting, waiting for you to dig in.

University of Montana Grizzly head football coach Bobby Hauck invites Griz fans to join the team and staff at the Ranch Club this Thursday evening (June 28) for the annual Brosovich Montana Football Celebrity Gala and Auction, with proceeds directly benefiting the football program.

This year's event begins with a luau-themed pig roast, social hour, music and silent auction all starting at 5:00 p.m. Thursday. Tickets to the celebrity gala luau are only $10 for the general public, available at the door. Tickets are free for those participating in the SOLD OUT fundraiser golf tournament the next day.

The luau will be held at the Ranch Club's Barn on Mullan Road. Anticipation for the 2018  Grizzly football season is starting to get hotter than a tiki torch. We hope you can luau with us Thursday evening!
