Don't Miss "Operation Giveaway" On Feb. 27

Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University students and fans will have chances to win prizes, scholarships and more during "Operation Giveaway" to be held in conjunction with the Bulldogs' 2009-10 regular-season men's and women's basketball finales at Wink Arena.

"Operation Giveaway" will take place on Saturday, Feb. 27, as the Bulldogs host the Wayne State Warriors in a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) doubleheader. The women's game tips off at 1 p.m. (EST) with the men's contest scheduled for a 3 p.m. (EST) start.

FSU students will be admitted free to the game and are encouraged to come out and fill the stands to receive a chance at one of ten $500 scholarships slated to be offered with the odds doubling by attending both the men's and women's games. 

Tons of other giveaways will also be awarded throughout the day and the first 500 fans will receive a rally towel.

"Operation Giveaway is our way of saying thanks to both the student body and community," said FSU Associate Athletics Director Jon Coles. "We've had tremendous crowds and support throughout the year and this is an opportunity for us to express our appreciation."

Free transportation will be provided via charter bus from on-campus residence halls to Wink Arena and a new ping pong table will be given to the hall with the highest overall attendance at the event.

The giveaways will also include free tanning packages for spring break, free lunches, twenty $10 gift cards courtesy of Buffalo Wild Wings, $300 worth of gift cards to be given away from Meijer and more. All fans in attendance will also receive a coupon for "Four Free Wings" compliments of Buffalo Wild Wings.

A number of promotional things for community members will also take place in conjunction with "Operation Giveaway" in an effort to help pack Wink Arena to capacity. An inflatable bounce house will be available for kids and youth basketball scrimmages will be held at halftime. Various FSU Student-Athletes will also be honored throughout the day.

Additionally, the regular-season finale also represents Ferris' annual "Senior Day" encounter with this year's Bulldog basketball seniors honored prior to their first home contests.

All children will receive "free admission" with a paid adult.

Additionally, local high school and youth teams will also be invited to attend as part of "Team Appreciation Day" for their support of the Bulldogs.
