Marywood to Host 5th Annual Charity Basketball Game
Published on Mon, March 19, 2012
For the past five years, athletes from Marywood University and Allied Services have been teaming up for a wheelchair basketball game, raising money and awareness for St. Joseph's Center.
On Saturday, March 24, at 6:30 p.m., at the Mellow Center, the Marywood University men's and women's basketball teams will play against Allied Forces from Allied Services in a wheelchair basketball game. Doors will open at 5 p.m. General admission is $5, while students with an ID will be admitted for $3.
Kevin Kuna, assistant director of Student Support Services, got the idea for a charity basketball game when he was an instructor.
"I would like to raise awareness for spinal cord injury," Kuna said. "Service is a part of our life, and there are others who are in need. It really shows that our clubs and teams care, and they give back to the community."
