RUSTON - With the help of The Ruston Jaycees to brighten the Christmas of children in the area, Louisiana Tech Bulldog and Lady Techster fans are encouraged to show their holiday spirit by donating new or slightly used toys for our Toys for Tots drive.
Toys can be delivered at the main entrance of the Thomas Assembly Center on any home basketball game night from now until Friday, Dec. 14. Fans may also drop off toys at the ticket office during normal operating hours during this same time span.
On Saturday, Dec. 8 when the `Dogs take on Southern Miss at 7 p.m. inside the TAC, fans who bring a toy for donation will be given a raffle ticket and be automatically entered for a chance to win an autographed basketball by the 2012-13 Bulldogs.
Champ also made a special call to the North Pole and asked Santa if he could come by the arena to visit with all the boys and girls.
Jolly St. Nick will be on the main concourse from 5:30 till tip-off to take pictures (please bring your own camera), and as a special holiday treat he will be reading The Night Before Christmas at halftime to all the little Tech fans.
Santa will also be back on Wednesday, Dec. 12 when the Lady Techsters take on McNeese State at 7 p.m.
