4-H youth from across the state of Iowa are welcome once again to attend an Iowa State University women’s basketball game. 4-H'ers have an opportunity to see the Cyclone women take on Kansas State University on Feb. 27. Tip-off for the game is at 7 p.m. that Saturday in Hilton Coliseum.
“We hope that 4-H clubs will take advantage of this opportunity to come to Ames, visit the state 4-H office, see the Iowa State University campus, and of course, cheer on the Cyclones,” said Shelly Greving of the Iowa 4-H Foundation.
For $15, 4-H'ers receive game admission, an exclusive 4-H Cyclone T-shirt and a pregame tailgate party at the Extension 4-H Building on the ISU Campus. The pregame tailgate will feature a pork meal donated by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. Additionally, the price includes a $2 donation to the Iowa 4-H Foundation.
“This is a great way to show dual support for the Iowa 4-H Foundation as well,” said Greving. The Iowa 4-H Foundation finances many 4-H programs including scholarships, 4-H camps and National 4-H Conference.
This is the second annual 4-H Day at Cyclone Women’s Basketball. Last year the event brought around 1,000 4-H members, volunteers, staff and alumni to Ames for the evening, explained Greving.
“We are looking to be close to the 1,000 mark in attendance again this year,“ said Greving. “Anyone associated with 4-H is welcome to attend to make this a great showing for Iowa’s 4-H program.”
