PORTLAND, Ore. - The first home Lewis & Clark basketball games of the 2012-13 season will begin with the Bon Appetit Tournament Nov. 16 with a men's contest vs. UC Santa Cruz, followed by the women on Nov. 17 and 18, vs. UC Santa Cruz and Corban.

For entry to the contests, the Lewis & Clark athletics department is encouraging parents and fans to bring canned goods in conjunction with the football squad's recent partnership with St. Vincent de Paul. For every three cans of food received, a raffle ticket will be given for a trip to Las Vegas, Nev. through Archer Travel.

The winner of the raffle will win a certificate good for two-night room accommodations at the hotel of choice. The certificate will cover the room price, taxes and resort fees, and round trip air transportation for two guests.
Canned food donations may be brought to the following Pioneer competitions to enter the raffle:

Men's Basketball vs. UC Santa Cruz | Friday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m.

Women's Basketball vs. UC Santa Cruz | Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m.

Women's Basketball vs. Corban | Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m.

The winner must be or accompanied by someone 21 years of age. Lewis & Clark is not responsible for the accommodations or travel arrangements provided.
