Rocket Roundball Social to be Held in Savage Arena on Thursday, Oct. 17
TOLEDO, OH — University of Toledo President Dr. Lloyd Jacobs and his wife Ola are hosting a Rocket Roundball Social on the main floor of Savage Arena on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the University of Toledo Men’s Basketball Progress Fund.
The Rocket Roundball Social, which is an event that has grown into a Rocket basketball tradition, offers individuals the opportunity to meet Head Coach Tod Kowalczyk, his staff and players while enjoying food from some of Toledo’s finest restaurants.
Kowalczyk is entering his fourth season at UT’s helm and has orchestrated a dramatic turnaround since his arrival in 2010. UT registered the second-largest turnaround in NCAA Division I Basketball in 2011-12 with its 19-17 win-loss mark and followed that up by sharing the MAC West Division title with Western Michigan last season. The Rockets are returning four starters from last year’s squad, including all-conference guards Rian Pearson and Julius Brown, as well as MAC All-Freshman Team member Nathan Boothe.
A silent and live auction will be held during the evening with some of the items available for purchase including a “Roadtrip with the Rockets”, “All-Access Program Pass for a Game”, Toledo basketball apparel and assorted memorabilia.
Advance ticket options include:
• Individual ticket - $75.00
• Reserved table of 10 - $1,000
Payments can be made via cash, credit card or check. Checks should be made payable to the UT Foundation. Please reserve your tickets by Tuesday, October 15 by contacting Toledo Basketball by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (419) 530-7739.
