HOUGHTON, Mich. - The Michigan Tech men's and women's basketball programs will each be hosting a "Copper Country Strong" game this Thursday (Dec. 6) when the teams both host Parkside. The teams will then host a Teddy Bear Toss during halftime of their games on Saturday (Dec. 8) against Purdue Northwest.
The Huskies are partnering with the Portage Health Foundation for these events to assist in the continued clean-up and repairs from the Father's Day Flood. Each player will have a warm-up t-shirt that will be available to bid on using the women's basketball or men's basketball Facebook page, with the minimum bid being $20.
Go to the women's basketball roster page or the men's basketball roster page and pick which player's jersey you'd like to bid on. You then go to the respective team's Facebook page to place a bid on a shirt.
Donation boxes will also be available at the main entrance to the SDC Wood Gym for the basketball games. The women's basketball Facebook page to bid on t-shirts and the men's basketball Facebook page can be accessed at the links above. Bids can also be made at the events on Thursday night at the location of the donation boxes.
On Saturday, fans will have opportunity to throw a teddy bear in a can in the middle of the floor to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to university images and a free Rosza Center ticket pack. Fans will need to bring a teddy bear to the game and the overall goal is to have 2,000 teddy bears combined between basketball and hockey. The teddy bears will be donated to the Toys for Tots annual Christmas drive.
The tip-off for the women's basketball game Thursday will be at 5:30 p.m. followed by the men's game at 7:30 p.m.
