Jan. 12, 2010
CHICAGO - On Saturday, January 23, the Flames will host the Third Annual UIC Women's Basketball Fundraiser at 7:00 p.m. following the Horizon League showdown against the Green Bay Phoenix at 5:30 p.m.
Following the game, the Flames will host an exciting evening featuring all-you-can-eat dinner, beer and wine, a raffle and a silent auction. Tickets for the event, which will be held in the Dragon's Den at the UIC Pavilion, are only $20 and are separate from your game ticket. All proceeds from the event directly benefit the UIC women's basketball program.
Attendees for this special event must be 21 years of age or older.
Some of the items up for raffle and auction include: gift certificates to local restaurants like Hashbrowns (731 W. Maxwell St., Chicago, IL 60607), Junior's Sports Lounge (724 W. Maxwell St., Chicago, IL 60607) and Jamba Juice, a UIC Basketball Bar table and stool set (includes a table and two stools), a UIC glass-etched pitcher and glass set (includes a pitcher and four glasses) and much more. Also available in the silent auction will be two (2) week-long stays at condos in San Diego, Calif.
"It's a way to reconnect with alumni, old friends and fans," said UIC head coach Lisa Ryckbosch. "We'd love for everyone to come out to the game first [at 5:30] and stick around. Hopefully we'll have another reason to celebrate besides each other's company."
