Men’s Basketball To Play Exhibition Game Against Lafayette For Hurricane Relief

Penn State men’s basketball climbs in 21 days, but before that, the team will play an exhibition game against Lafayette on November 4.

The game is even for a good cause — every penny raised from the game’s ticket sales, concessions, and merchandise will go towards the One America Appeal.

One America Appeal, which was formed by the five living former United States Presidents, will put all of this money towards the relief efforts in Texas, Puerto Rico, and Florida. These areas were all devastated by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria earlier this year.

“It is incredibly important for us to support the One America Appeal,” Coach Pat Chambers said. “We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with Lafayette and bring Penn State basketball to the Lehigh Valley area for this worthy cause. If we are able to assist those affected by these disasters by playing the game we love, it’s a win across the board.”

Tickets cost $5 for students and $10 for all other fans. You can buy tickets online here.
