WEAR YOUR ORANGE AND BLACK TO THE MUSICAL!
Hey, Bearcats, in honor of our mighty San Francisco Giants, with whom we share team colors, we’re doing a special tribute all weekend at the fall musical, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND.  For anyone who buys a regular priced ticket and wears orange and black to the show, we will donate one dollar of that ticket’s cost to Junior Giants, the charity run by the Giants Community Fund to provide needy children with the chance to play baseball. So come out in full force and support this worthy cause.  We’ll see you at the show!  Go Giants!
