BANNER ELK, N.C. --- The Lees-McRae College athletic department will be hosting the NCAA's annual Take a Kid to the Game program on Saturday, January 8, in Williams Gymnasium, announced athletic director Craig McPhail Tuesday.

Lees-McRae is scheduled to host Conference Carolinas' foe Mount Olive College in addition to the Take a Kid to the Game program, a program designed to allow kids to experience the game-day atmosphere of college basketball.

As part of the program, Youth (ages 17 and under), will receive a free ticket to the contest with the purchase of a full-price adult admission ($3). The initiative provides free admission for any youth who arrives at the arena wearing their youth league basketball jersey. Additional student tickets can be purchased at $1 at the gate.

The women's contest is slated to tip off at 2 p.m., followed by the men's game at 4 p.m. There will be hand-outs provided to all youth who attend, and there will be a special contest taking place at halftime of each competition during the afternoon.

Come on out, support the Bobcats, and Take a Kid to the Game!
