SAAC gives parents a night out
December 9, 2008
Misenheimer, NC- Pfeifferís Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) raised $180 for the Make-A-Wish foundation during the first Parentsí Night Out event hosted at Pfeiffer University. The event brought together student-athletes and children from around the community to enjoy a night of fun games and an exciting basketball game.
Parentsí Night Out drew in 18 children who were able to spend the evening with 20 Pfeiffer athletes representing menís and womenís soccer, lacrosse, swimming, cross country, softball, and baseball. The children ate dinner with the student-athletes, played games, and created a banner in support of the womenís basketball team.† All of the participants also got their chance to compete on the main floor at half time in a dizzy bat contest, with the winners receiving Pfeiffer Athletics t-shirts.† The menís and womenís basketball team even lined up to sign autographs after the game.† While the children bonded with the Falcon student-athletes their parents had a night of fun on their own.
Parentsí Night Out was deemed a success all around with everyone having fun and raising almost $200 for Make-A-Wish. SAAC plans on hosting another Parentís night out for one of the menís basketball games later in the season.
