X.U.‘s Lady Musketeers announce “Swishes for Wishes” game

Yesterday, Xavier’s women’s basketball team announced its 3rd annual “Swishes for Wishes” game will be played at 6:00 p.m., Saturday, January 26, at the Cintas Center when they take on the U.Mass. Minutewomen. What that means is that $1.00 from every ticket sold will benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make a sick child’s wish come true.

But that’s not all. Lots of fun activities for all ages will also fill the evening. Before the game, the Kroger Kids Zone will feature face painting, cornhole, sign making, basket shooting; and time will be allocated to interact with the mascots and cheerleaders. The Sherwood Rappin’ Ropes will entertain at halftime, and during the game, mini-basketballs, Xavier merchandise and gift certificates will be given away. Following the game, the Lady Musketeers will sign autographs.

And if that’s not enough, in addition to the $1.00 donation from ticket sales, Xavier is auctioning off a luxury suite on The auction runs from Tuesday, January 15 through 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 23. All proceeds from the auction will also benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Tickets are only $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for youth 17 and under. Groups of 15 or more can get $2.00 off. Groups will be announced on the video board and over the public address system if tickets are purchased in advance of game day. For tickets call (513) 745-3411.
