The Iona College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) donated over $600 to support St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. On Monday, February 16th and Saturday, February 28th members of the Iona College SAAC sold 50/50 raffles at the Men’s and Women’s Basketball games. SAAC members reached out to the many Gael fans in attendance to help support St. Jude’s through donations. Members of the SAAC sold tickets in the lobby of the Hynes Athletic Center as well as walking through the stands during both games.
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee consists of representatives from each varsity team. It is the goal of SAAC to be the student-athlete voice to the athletic administration; provide a bridge between the student-athletes and the Iona community; to undertake Student-Athlete Advisory Committee projects which will benefit student-athletes and the community; and to represent Iona College student-athletes and what they stand for.
