Sign up for Alumni Slam Dunk event
The Alumni Association and Athletics Department are hosting the Alumni Slam Dunk prior to the men’s basketball game on January 5. The event will include a special appearance by Reggie Redbird, kids activities and more. Alumni are invited to attend this family friendly pre-game reception, which will include a spirit pack (two free tickets to a women’s basketball game and other items) with registration. Guests are encouraged to bring a camera if they would like a photo with Reggie. The pre-game reception will be held in Horton Fieldhouse, with tip-off at 7:05 p.m.
“It has become a true pleasure to partner with the Alumni Association on a number of events throughout this academic and calendar year,” said Illinois State Director of Athletics Sheahon Zenger. “Under the leadership of Stephanie Epp, the Alumni Association has really moved forward in sponsoring these types of activities. Through our partnership, we believe that we are able to provide a better venue for all of our alumni to celebrate not only our athletic success, but our academic success and their memories of being a Redbird.”
“The Slam Dunk event is a great opportunity for our loyal alumni fans to bring their children and other guests to Redbird Arena for a night of family fun,” Epp said. “Please join us as we all cheer on the men’s basketball team and Spread the Red!”
Pep Band alumni are encouraged to register to play with the Pep Band for the evening’s festivities. The Alumni Pep Band warmup is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., with members entering through the southwest loading dock of Redbird Arena. Pep Band participants receive free game tickets, but must purchase tickets for their guests. Pep Band members needing to borrow an instrument must select this option on the online registration form.
