The Hope College men's basketball team will host two charity exhibition games on Monday, October 30 at DeVos Fieldhouse to benefit the American Red Cross hurricane relief efforts.
Hope College will take part along with Calvin College, Davenport University, and Grand Valley State University. In addition, Hope College soccer fans can support the American Red Cross hurricane efforts when they purchase tickets for the 5 p.m. Flying Dutch home match against Trine at Van Andel Soccer Stadium.
"We are excited about the opportunity to team up with our neighboring institutions for such a noble cause," Hope College coach Greg Mitchell said. "This has been such a challenging time throughout our country, it feels great that we can come together and make a significant contribution. Credit to the NCAA for allowing teams to seize this opportunity.
"I'm hopeful West Michigan shows up to make it a highly successful event. In addition, the game gives us a chance to get a glimpse of where we stand as a team against an outstanding program like GVSU."
At DeVos Fieldhouse, Calvin will face Davenport at 6 p.m. and Hope will play GVSU at 8 p.m.
