Service auction will be held on behalf of USU alum

Brody Lambert is a Utah State University alumnus. He loves hunting, fishing, four-wheeling and camping. He is married to his college sweetheart. He has four children ranging from ages one to nine.

Lambert also has stage four heart failure. His heart cannot beat on its own. His only hope of survival is a new heart from a donor, which costs around $500,000.

The USU Ambassadors have chosen Lambert to be the recipient of their annual service auction, which will be held for the first time during A-week. The auction, which is open to the public, will begin at 4:30 p.m on April 14 in the Taggart Student Center Ballroom.

“Having the auction during A-week, we hope to encourage more people outside of the Ambassador program to participate. We have such a good outcome with the Ambassadors,” said Breeanna Smith, an Ambassador. “But we would love to have more support from outside groups, allowing for a more cohesive and supportive campus community.”

All funds raised at this event will go to Lambert and his family.

“After hearing Brody’s story, my heart ached,” said Chelsea Yoshikawa, a freshman Ambassador. “He was a great choice for this service and I’m so glad we can help him in any way.”

The Ambassadors are offering a variety of services to be auctioned such as lawn care, tennis lessons and cabin getaways.
