Enjoy hoops while fighting polio

Whether you go to support the Mustangs to the north or the Gauchos to the south, you’ll be fighting polio either way.

The Jan. 19 Cal Poly Women’s Basketball game is doubling as Rotary-Polio Plus night, courtesy of the athletic team and Rotary District 5240.

According to a release from Curtis Reinhardt of the Arroyo Grande Rotary Club, the event aims to “be a social event for District Rotarians, raise awareness and funds for Rotary’s International Polio Plus program, and support our regional college women’s basketball teams.”

Come to the Mott Gym on the Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, campus at 4 p.m. to see the game and various displays and to make donations. Halftime will feature opportunities for attendees to make free throws and three-pointers for prizes; each shot costs, with all the proceeds going toward the Polio Plus effort, seeking to eradicate the infectious disease Rotary has made its mission to stamp out.

Tickets are available in advance; attendees are encouraged to buy a group of tickets (15 or more, and must be purchased before Jan. 19) for $4 each. General admission tickets are available in advance or at the door and cost $8 for adults, $6 for senior/staff, and $4 for youth. Call 756-4TIX or 1-866-Go-Stangs or visit Cal Poly Rotaract students and district high school Interact students get in for free. Game parking will be free in the large parking garage on Grand Avenue near Mott Gym and the Performing Arts Center.
