TREASURE COAST -- The Athletics Department at Indian River State College is kicking off the new season with a "Basketball Extravaganza" Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the gymnasium on the IRSC Main Campus, located at 3209 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce.

The event will showcase the College's basketball programs. Prior to the start of the season, this will be a night of fun, but more importantly, a night to help those in need. Admission to the event is the donation of at least two canned food items or a minimum cash donation of $1.

This will be an event filled with music, scrimmages, three-point shooting contests, dunk contests and guest bench coaches from IRSC faculty and administration. This event is a great opportunity for the community to get a sneak preview of what the IRSC men's and women's basketball teams have to offer.

Coach Joe Sanchez, along with Assistant Coach Jarrett Stephens, will make a bid to return to the state tournament. The event will also feature the IRSC Women's Basketball team and Head Coach Diana Couch. Ms. Couch and Assistant Coach Vanessa Santiago are looking to make their mark in the Southern Conference and return to post-season play in the upcoming season.

All canned food collected will be donated to the Pioneer Pantry on campus to stock the shelves for IRSC students in need.
