NEWARK, Del. - - Dare to make a difference for the children of Alfred I. duPont Hospital this holiday season.
Donate a NEW, unwrapped non-violent toy for boys and girls ages 4-12 prior to watching the University of Delaware men’s basketball team take on La Salle on Monday, December 19, at the Bob Carpenter Center.
Donations will be accepted in the BCC main lobby when doors open at 6 p.m. until the conclusion of halftime. The game is slated for a 7 p.m. tip-off.
Participating fans who donate toys will receive a voucher for two FREE tickets to be redeemed for either the Jan. 4 men’s basketball contest against Hofstra, or the Jan. 21 men’s basketball matchup against Georgia State.
Not only do toy donators give fans a chance to see the men’s basketball squad a second time, fans participating in the toy drive will also receive a contest ticket for a chance to win a 2011-12 men’s basketball team-signed basketball during the La Salle game. Contest tickets will be limited to one per person, and the winner will be announced during the final official timeout of the second half (under 4:00 on the game clock).
All redemptions must take place at least 48 hours in advance of the game at the UD Athletic Ticket Office in the Delaware Field House, Room 101. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
