Lady Pirates Set Promotions For VCU Game
Dec. 1, 2009
GREENVILLE, N.C. - In advance of the East Carolina women's basketball team's 7 p.m. contest with undefeated VCU Wednesday at Minges Coliseum, the Pirate athletics marketing department has announced four promotions for the event.
Students can enter to win two round-trip airline tickets to anywhere in the United States for spring break. Registration tables will be set up at Wright Place Tuesday and Wednesday, and students may also sign up at the promotions table inside Minges before the game. The winner will be announced during the second half and must be present to claim the tickets.
Wednesday also serves as Youth Day and Military Appreciation Day. Fans 18 and under will receive free admission as will those who present a valid military identification card.
Finally, ECU will sponsor Toys for Tots. Any fan who donates a toy to the organization at the door can enjoy the game at no charge.
The Lady Pirates are 6-0 for only the second time in school history and first since the NCAA officially recognized women's basketball in 1982. East Carolina is also receiving votes in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, having already defeated three 2009 postseason qualifiers in Charlotte (NCAA), Western Carolina (NCAA) and American (WNIT).
