Wilson Gym will open its doors at 6:45 p.m. with admission being charged as $1.00 for Barton students, faculty, and staff and $3.00 for community members. All proceeds from this event will go to the Campus Campaign fundraiser by the Barton College Student Government Association.

The women's basketball team will kick off the event with a 20-minute scrimmage followed by a 20-minute scrimmage from the men's team. In between games, attendees will have the chance to play games and receive prizes from Bulldogs United and SGA including tickets to men's basketball game versus defending national champion the University of North Carolina on Friday, Oct. 27.
