The Saturday Pre-Game Reception in conjunction with University Alumni Relations and the Bay Area Regional Councils was a great success! We had 48 new people make gifts to the San Francisco Dons Fund and sold 20 more of the Dons Deals – 3 Packs. Thank you all for your hospitality and support in our efforts to get more people engaged and excited about USF Athletics!
Tomorrow night’s game vs. San Jose State is an 8:00PM tip with pre-game reception starting at 6:30PM. A side note from Julie Congi: she has ordered “Southwestern/Spanish night in honor of the San Jose Spartans with Tequila Margarita's and Corona Beers!”
As we move forward in this exciting time of transition, there are a few logistical changes for the basketball receptions outlined below:
· All pre-game receptions will be held in the new UC Solarium 1.5 hours before tip-off.
· All halftime receptions will also be in the UC Solarium.
o Please make sure you have a gold wrist ban to re-enter the gym if you do go to the halftime reception.
· The $5 and $2 drink tickets do not expire. Please purchase at the pre-game registration as there won’t be any halftime drink sales.
San Francisco Dons Fund Update:
· So far the Dons Fund is off to a great start! The total dollars raised year to date has increased over 100% from last year.
· 6th Man Members who renew their gift to the Dons Fund in support of men’s basketball will receive a new membership card for this season.
· Your gift to the Dons Fund offers access to the basketball pre-game receptions this season and will also count towards your benefits for next year.
· For more info on the Dons Fund we have updated our website: www.USFDons.com/SFDFF
Please let me know if there are any questions, I am happy to discuss anytime and can be reached at 415-422-2160 or at any of the pre-game receptions. Thank you all for your support and Go Dons!
