Community invited to Christmas Slam

Posted November 29, 2012

Both ACU's men's and women's basketball teams will take on Texas A&M-Commerce here at home on Tuesday, Dec. 4. Join us starting at 5:30 p.m. for ACU’s "Christmas Slam."

There will be a Christmas party in the Moody Coliseum concourse, complete with Santa Claus, Team Big Air (an NBA halftime acrobatic group) and many more fun activities.

Bring unwrapped children’s undergarments/toys for ages 4-12 for Arms of Hope, or canned goods for the KRBC share your Christmas Food Drive, to receive a ticket at the discounted price of $5/person.

A few of the anticipated highlights:

• Clubs and organizations from across campus will set up Christmas-themed booths on the concourse. The club with the best design will determine the charity that will receive a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales.

• Children can take photos with Santa Claus (also known as ACU Assistant Dean for Spiritual Life and Chapel Programs Mark Lewis).

• The ACU Athletics Department will provide candy canes, along with other prizes to be given away throughout the games.

• Pizza will be provided to the first 200 students who enter.

• Audience members will be asked to remain silent until ACU scores its tenth point during the men’s game, at which point the audience will cheer.

• President Schubert will offer a special Christmas blessing at halftime.
