Bridgeport Basketball Set To Host Its Second Annual "Donate Life" Games This Saturday, February 11th

Purple Knights | University of Bridgeport

Bridgeport, Conn.-On Saturday, February 11, 2012, the University of Bridgeport women's and men's basketball teams will be hosting an East Coast Conference doubleheader in UB's Harvey Hubbell Gymnasium versus Queens (N.Y.) College. Those two contests have been designated as "Donate Life" games, as all proceeds from the day (all tickets sales and a variety of raffles) will be donated to the Donate Life Connecticut organization to help raise awareness about organ and tissue donations to help save lives.

This event is the second annual UB Basketball "Donate Life" games, and it is the brainchild of second-year Bridgeport head women's basketball coach Stephanie Del Preore to honor her late father who passed away in 2002 after a courageous battle with liver and kidney disease.Read more: http://www.ubknights.com/sports/wbkb/2011-12/releases/20120207065vga
