It’s Time For Winter Community Day

9 Jan , 2020  

You’re invited to join the Bishop Backers on January 25 for Winter Community Day 2020, a free Delaware celebration held in Ohio Wesleyan University’s Branch Rickey Arena and Gordon Field House, 105 S. Sandusky St., Delaware.

The family-friendly event will include free on-campus parking and free admission to both a Delaware Expo showcasing local nonprofits and businesses and an Ohio Wesleyan women’s and men’s varsity basketball doubleheader. (Admission is free with a canned food donation – unexpired, please – or a monetary donation to benefit the Delaware County Hunger Alliance. For a list of most-needed pantry items, visit owu.edu/BishopBackers.)

During the Bishop Backers event, both the OWU women’s and men’s basketball teams will take on the Gators of Allegheny College. The women’s game will begin at 1 PM and the men’s game will follow at 3 PM.

The Delaware Expo will be open from noon to 3:30 PM inside the adjacent field house and will feature:

  • An indoor children’s play area courtesy of the Delaware Community Center YMCA.
  • A visit from Columbus Zoo and Aquarium animal ambassadors at 2:15 PM
  • An opportunity to pet dogs from the Humane Society of Delaware County.
  • A chance to meet OWU varsity athletes.
  • Free raffles for prizes including a big-screen television and 50/50 raffles to benefit the Hunger Alliance.

Organizations wishing to have a table at the expo are asked to register online now at owu.edu/BishopBackers. Tables are $25 for for-profit businesses if paid at the time of registration or $30 if paid on the day of the event. Tables are free for nonprofit organizations, which are invited to collect food in advance at their locations to contribute to the January 25 drive. The table registration deadline for both groups has been extended through January 17.
