A Terrific Thanksgiving Weekend Community Event and Giveaway

I was recently approached by 76 Classic Gives Back to host a giveaway on my site and tell ya'll about this wonderful community event. I am NOT being paid to do this but thought it was a wonderful event, particularly as we get closer to the holidays and begin drowning in a sea of buy, buy, buy. Here's the info:

The 76 Classic is a men's college basketball tournament, held in Anaheim, CA over Thanksgiving weekend. That's in Orange County, right next to Disneyland. This year's tournament includes Boston College, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Saint Louis, Santa Clara, UC Riverside, Washington State and Villanova. This year, the 76 Classic has identified Hunger Relief and Education as two areas in which the surrounding Orange County communities can benefit. In partnership with the City of Anaheim, the 76 Class has designed philanthropic programs to support local charities, as well as elementary, junior high and high schools throughout Orange County to get involved. The general public can get into the 76 Classic (one session; two games) for $10 with a can of food for donation. They can also visit Northgate Markets and buy and donate food there for a voucher for free admission.

-All students K-12 and children can get into the tournament (one session; two games) for free with a can of food.

All proceeds go to the Orange County Food Bank. Just to clarify, the public will get into one session of the tournament with one can of food for $10 or free for children. They will need to donate a can per session.

All donated food items will go to the Orange County Food Bank.

Now here's my giveaway! I have two passes to attend the tournament. Please leave a comment below before Monday at 5:00 pm Pacific Time. I will draw a random winner and notify you Monday, November 21st. You must then give me your contact info and the tickets are yours on Tuesday!

Play ball!
