Joining a long line of prominent college basketball programs that have answered the call to help those affected by natural disasters, the St. John’s and Rutgers men’s basketball teams will play an exhibition game on Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. in Piscataway, N.J., benefitting the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
General admission tickets to the contest and parking at The RAC will be $10 each with all net proceeds going to help those in need. Floor seating, however, will be reserved for Rutgers season ticket holders that occupy those seats throughout the year.
Tickets can be purchased online or by calling at 1-866-445-GORU (4678). Tickets will also be available on gameday at the Rutgers Athletics Ticket Office, located at the RAC.
Net proceeds will be derived from admission and parking fees, concessions and merchandise sales. For additional information on American Red Cross Disaster Relief, visit redcross.org.
