Mike Rice’s Tip-Off Dinner To Benefit Coaches vs. Cancer Postponed

By Matt Sugam

Due to the affects of Hurricane Sandy, Mike Rice’s tip-off dinner scheduled for this Friday night, November 3 at 7 p.m. has been postponed. The event raises money for Coaches vs. Cancer.

“As much as we were all looking forward to this event, I believe it’s in the best interest of all parties to postpone,” Rice said in a statement released by the athletic department. “Living in Little Silver, my family personally experienced some of the terrible effects of this storm. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected. We are committed to Coaches vs. Cancer and will put together a dinner indicative of this tremendous cause later this season.”

A new date for the event has yet to be set.
