EDWARDSVILLE, ILL., NCAA Division I Basketball is coming to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) and the growing fan base has already begun efforts to support the burgeoning program. In anticipation of the upcoming season, the SIUE Friends of Men's Basketball is hosting its first fund-raiser, a Trivia Night on Friday, October 23, 2009, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Moose Lodge on Marine Road in Edwardsville. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with a silent auction. The event is $100 per table, (no more than 10 people per table). Participants are invited to bring food, but drinks must be purchased and there will be a cash bar available. Proceeds from the event will provide support for the Division I Men's Basketball program at SIUE. Questions for the trivia night were drawn from a variety of categories including entertainment, history, literature, sports and more. In addition to trivia, there will be door prizes, bonus rounds and a chance to meet SIUE basketball players and coaches.
"Regardless of where you graduated, SIUE is the university in our community, and we can play a part in building a championship program," said Friends of Men's Basketball President SJ Morrison. "The Trivia Night is just one way to show your support. When the season starts, we hope you will come to the games as well."
