RUSTON, La. - With the help of The Ruston Jaycees to brighten the Christmas of children in the area, Louisiana Tech Lady Techster fans are encouraged to show their holiday spirit this week 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 for both home basketball game nights on Dec. 12 and 14. Fans may also drop off toys at the ticket office during normal operating hours leading up to Friday as well.
On Wednesday when the Techsters take on McNeese State 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 a throwback Teresa Weatherspoon jersey signed by the entire Lady Techster squad.
Jolly St. Nick will also be on the main concourse from 5:30 till tip-off to take pictures (please bring your own camera), and during halftime, kids will have a chance to play "Santa Says" and other reindeer games.
Fans who donate a toy for Friday's contest versus Oral Roberts at 7 p.m. will also be in the running to win a throwback Teresa Weatherspoon jersey autographed by the team.
