Charity basketball game at UPG

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg’s Student Government Association will hold its annual charity basketball game Wednesday in Chambers Hall beginning at 6 p.m.

The event, which pits teams made up of students against members of the faculty and staff, is open to the public at no charge.

Proceeds benefit United Way or Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Pitt-Greensburg students clubs and organizations will raffle off baskets, Penguins tickets, a gift-card tree and photos signed by Steelers’ defensive end Cam Heyward. T-shirts commemorating the event will also be available.

Raffle sales start at noon on Wednesday and individuals do not have to be present to win. Tickets will also be available for a 50/50 drawing to be held after the game (winner needs to be present).
