Pack the Hall, Pink Zone Game Highlight Promotions Schedule
Dec. 9, 2009
Champaign, Ill. - The annual Pack the Hall (Feb. 21) and WBCA Pink Zone (Feb. 7) games highlight the 2009-10 women's basketball promotions schedule. Last year's Pack the Hall game drew over 7,000 orange-clad fans and the Pink Zone game, which raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research, will be the fourth annual at Illinois.
In addition to the two main events, there will be several other exciting events at Assembly Hall this season, including tonight's Warm-A-Kid Night to help provide warm clothing for area children in need this winter. Illinois will also continue annual events like Boy Scout and Girl Scout Days and Take a Kid to the Game Night, on top of the always-popular autograph sessions (Dec. 19, Jan. 10, Feb. 7 and Feb. 21).
