Shooting for the Shore

When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey in October, it had an impact on everyone in the state, including Rowan students. Some students lost homes, others have hometowns forever affected, and some were affected by the simple fact that their favorite vacation spot in the world was turned upside down. In December, a few Sport Club staff members envisioned a way they could give back. The idea for ‘Shooting for the Shore’ was born.

The main event will be a Students vs. Faculty/Staff basketball game on Friday, April 19th at 7:00pm. The event will feature food, prizes, raffles, and games throughout the evening. All proceeds raised the night of the event will be donated to the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. In addition to these activities, the Sport Club department will be hosting a canned food drive throughout the semester. Admission to the game is free, however monetary and canned food donations are encouraged.

We are also accepting online donations for the New Jersey American Red Cross here:

Students may purchase raffle tickets at the Rec Center or Student Center at Rowan University between March 25th and April 11th for a chance to play in the game. A drawing will take place on April 12th to select the participants of the student team. Between 12 and 15 students will be selected and notified one week prior to the game. Students may purchase tickets for themselves or on another student's behalf.
