TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Millions of people have been affected by last month’s tsunami disaster all over the world. In an attempt to help provide support to the victims of the tsunami, Florida State University student-athletes will be at the doors of the Leon County Civic Center on Saturday afternoon, before the start of the Seminole men’s basketball game against Duke, collecting donations to the aid in the relief effort. The Seminoles play host to the No. 4 ranked Blue Devils only three days after their victory over No. 3 ranked Wake Forest.
The Seminoles will work to earn another victory at home and in the process become the areas most successful fundraiser for the tsunami relief effort. Florida State student-athletes will be at all entrances to the Civic Center with canisters they hope to fill with countless numbers of donations.
The money raised from the event will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross for its tsunami relief fund. All checks for the fundraising effort should be made out to the American Red Cross.
In addition to the efforts of the student-athletes, a percentage of the proceeds from the concession sales at the game against Duke will also be donated to the Red Cross. Support the Seminoles as the play host to Duke and open up your hearts for the victims of the tsunami.
