The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted their inaugural toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots on Monday night during JWU's Multicultural Winter Celebration. Student -athletes hosted the event in cooperation with the Campus Activities Board and Sports and Entertainment Management Club. Representatives from each athletic team collected donations of toys and gifts and held an ugly sweater contest. Bryce Moore (Loma, Colo.) of the cross country/track & field team and Makayla Miller (Spring, Texas) of women's lacrosse were named winners for the ugliest sweaters and received prizes donated by Stanley Beer Hall and Sazza Pizza.
SAAC put together the event to introduce the group to the Denver Campus as well as come together as a group for a common cause, Toys for Tots.
Stay tuned through the new year for other programs and events sponsored by the Denver Campus Student Athlete Advisory Committee.
