ETSU's "Family Day" generates positive results
Tuesday, December 08, 2009
Over 975 pounds of food was collected for the Second Harvest Food Bank on Saturday
The special day turned out to generate huge results, as over 3,000 people entered the doors to see live entertainment with up-and-coming artist John Waller performing a pre-game concert, but also the Lady Bucs defeat the Ospreys, 82-54. Following the game, the ETSU women's basketball team and members from the cheerleading and dance squad conducted free post-game clinics on the court for all the children in attendance.
In addition to the entertainment, free food and giant inflatables, the Lady Buccaneer faithful took full advantage of the $1 admission ticket for this event. Those who entered the doors inside ETSU's Mini Dome on Saturday with a canned food item received the special admission price. After collecting the canned food items, over 979 pounds of food was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank - marking one of the largest one-day drives in WCQR history.
"Overall, we met our goals, as the Family Day festivities generated a lot of positive results," commented ETSU's Marketing and Promotions Coordinator Sara Hacker. "I want to thank WCQR for all their support in making this special day a huge success. Hopefully all those in attendance enjoyed the atmosphere. We hope they come back and join us throughout the remainder of the season to participate in our other promotions."
