Snack Pack the Palace event set for DWU game

The Weekend Snack Pack Program, in conjunction with Dakota Wesleyan University, is asking sports fans to Snack Pack the Palace at Wednesday’s Tiger basketball game.

DWU’s Enactus club is organizing an awareness event for the Weekend Snack Pack Program during the DWU vs. Mount Marty game Wednesday at the Corn Palace. A portion of the gate admission, as well as the proceeds of a 50/50 raffle, will go toward the Weekend Snack Pack program, and monetary and food donations are welcome at the donation booth in the Palace.

The women’s game begins at 6 p.m. and the men’s at 8 p.m. The crowd is encouraged to participate in a white-out event and the men’s game will be a “Silent Night” game, which is when the crow is asked to be completely silent until DWU scores its 10th point.
