Denison athletics will waive all admission fees for the 2013-14 men's and women's basketball regular season at Livingston Gymnasium. In lieu of admission fees, those in attendance will have the opportunity to support several great causes.
For all games in the months of November and December volunteers will be accepting monetary donations and non-perishable food items at the front door of Livingston Gym. One hundred percent of the donations and items collected will be donated to the Licking County Food Pantry.
In the months of January and February, volunteers will be accepting donations that will go to Kay Yow Cancer Fund, and the Allison Knobel-Sitton Endowed Scholarship Fund at Denison.
The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was named in honor of former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach, Kay Yow who passed away in 2009 after her third bout with breast cancer. The Allison Knobel-Sitton Endowed Scholarship Fund was created in memory of the daughter of former Denison President, Dale Knobel. In 2011, Allison lost a seven-year battle with breast cancer. The scholarship provides assistant to female students based on financial need.
Basketball season begins at home for the women's team on Wednesday (Nov. 20) against Mount St. Joseph at 7 p.m. The men will open at home on Saturday (Nov. 23) when they take on Marietta at 3 p.m.
