Holy Family University (Tigers) in conjunction with Bloomfield College (Bears) and Georgian Court University (Lions) will be hosting toy drives during the month of February to collect stuffed animals. Each school will then donate the stuffed animals to their local children's hospitals.
Holy Family will be donating its stuffed animals to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
During the men's and women's basketball doubleheader on Wednesday, Feb. 17 versus Chestnut Hill College, anyone who brings a stuffed animal to be donated will receive free admission.
General admission that night will be $5 with all proceeds going towards the stuffed animal toy drive and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Holy Family students, faculty and staff with valid university ID will be admitted free. In addition, those that would like to purchase a stuffed animal at the game can donate $2 and will be able to take part in an in-game event.
During a particular point in each game, fans will be allowed to toss the donated stuffed animal onto the court. Athletics staff will then collect the stuffed animals off the court so the game could resume.
