As you all know, the 2020 State Farm Holiday Classic is just one in a long line of COVID-19 cancellations this year. Our organizing committee should now be knee-deep in plans for what would have been our 42nd season of providing what we call “The Best Basketball this side of March!” for all of our players, coaches, fans, sponsors and volunteers.
But we are not letting that stop us in giving back to our community!!
We will be organizing our first ever canned food drive on Tuesday, December 29 with all donations going to the Midwest Food Bank facility in Normal. Today, this location serves over 377 agency partners across 50 counties throughout Central and Eastern Illinois, as well as agency partners in Kentucky and Tennessee.
- Tuesday, December 29
- Illinois Wesleyan University Shirk Center parking lot
- Donations of canned goods and non-perishable items will be accepted at that time
As always, we would appreciate any support from participating teams, sponsors and fans! If you are interested and able, please plan to drop off any donated items between 1-6pm on December 29 at the IWU Shirk Center. You can also share upcoming posts from our Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram accounts to help spread the word of this event.
On behalf of our entire organizing committee, please have a safe and healthy holiday season, and we look forward to seeing everyone back on a basketball court as soon as possible!!
