MVC tournament pregame events planned

Illinois State Athletics and Alumni Relations will host a pair of send-off parties for both the Redbird men’s and women’s basketball teams prior to their first games in the 2011 State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.

The men’s event will be held in the lobby at the Millennium Hotel in St. Louis prior to the Redbirds’ first tournament game. The pregame send-off is free to the public and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

A similar event will be hosted at the Sheraton Lakeside Chalet in Westport, Missouri, prior to the women’s tournament. This event will also be free to the public with hors d’oeuvres provided, along with a cash bar.

Alumni Relations and the Athletics Department will also host “welcome-backs” and “send-offs” for each subsequent game the Redbirds participate in at both tournaments. These additional events will include the availability of a cash bar.
