NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The Iona College men's basketball team announced the addition of a charity exhibition game to its preseason schedule. The Gaels will host Army West Point next Tuesday, October 24, at 8 p.m. at the Hynes Center. Tickets are on sale now and all proceeds will support hurricane relief efforts in Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas.
Money raised for the exhibition will be contributed to three organizations: Fondos Unidos de Puerto Rico, the Greater Houston Community Fund, and the Florida Disaster Fund.
"This summer's hurricanes created unimaginable devastation and we're fortunate to be able to make an impact in any way we can to help in the rebuilding effort," said Iona head coach Tim Cluess.
Iona and Army West Point received a waiver from the NCAA to hold the exhibition.
General admission tickets are $10 and student tickets are available for $5. Chairback section tickets are $15 and courtside seating is available for $25. Visit Iona's official ticket platform to purchase GA, chairback or courtside tickets. Student tickets can be purchased via a separate link.
