Purdue University Northwest (PNW) will host its annual Kids Day and Alumni Day on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the PNW Hammond Campus Fitness and Recreation Center.
PNW invites the community and all PNW students, staff and alumni for a day of fun as the Pride men’s and women’s basketball teams host Trinity International (Ill.) in a Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference doubleheader. The 13th-ranked women’s team will take on the Trojans beginning at 1 p.m. CT, followed by the men’s game at 3 p.m.
Sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and the Purdue Northwest Alumni Organization, PNW will offer free admission to all kids ages 17 and under as well as to all PNW alumni. Doors open at noon, and bouncy houses, face painting, coloring areas and more will be set up for the kids, plus free t-shirts and mini-basketballs to the first 100! A post-game autograph poster signing will also take place for all to attend.
Buffalo Wild Wings will also be in attendance with its mascot, Blazin’ Bill, with giveaways of its own, and PNW fans are invited to attend a special post-game reception at the Buffalo Wild Wings Hammond location (2942 Carlson Drive, Hammond, IN) to meet both Pride hoops teams. Those interested in attending the post-game event should RSVP by contacting Brandon Swanson at [email protected].
General adult admission for non-PNW alumni (ages 18 and up) is $6. The Fitness and Recreation Center is located at 2300 173rd Street, Hammond, IN 46323. Parking is free and located next to the FRC.
