All donated items will help MAC students that are in need.

“It’s one of the most exciting and fun-filled events this college offers,” Overman said. “The high energy level in the field house adds to the games and activities of the night. It’s gratifying to see the team members and crowd get all fired up about the upcoming basketball season, especially the little kids who will become our next generation of Cards fans."
