Dave Mogni to be honored at 14th annual CR Dinner & Sports Auction

The 14th annual College of the Redwoods Athletics Dinner and Sports Auction will be held on Thursday, August 10th at the CR Gymnasium. The Dinner and Sports Auction is a benefit for CR student athletes and their sports programs.

This year’s event will highlight Dave Mogni as the honoree and featured speaker. Mogni was named one of the Times-Standard’s “Top Athletes of the Century” and to its “All-Century Football Team”. The event kicks off at 5:30pm with a no-host social and silent auction, dinner and speakers at 6:30pm with the live auction to follow.

Dave Mogni is a local product, having attended Ferndale High School and College of the Redwoods before moving on to University of California at Berkeley. Mogni was a standout athlete at Ferndale High earning 15 varsity letters in four sports: football, basketball, baseball and track. He came to CR in 1975, where he continued his outstanding career in football, basketball and track. He played receiver on two Northern California football championship teams and was named All-Conference and All-State in 1976. He continued his football career as a receiver at UC Berkeley, graduating from Cal in 1980. He followed his football career by playing rugby, first for Cal and then for the Old Blues club where he played on back to back national championship teams. He retired from rugby in 1988.

Following a career in technology marketing and sales, Mogni returned to Humboldt County in 1997. He and his wife Barb are proprietors of Ferndale’s iconic Ivanhoe Hotel and Restaurant as well as the Palace Saloon.
