Coach Simmons and Marcus Wilson will speak at event
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – In the spirit of the Roberts Stadium Hospitality Room, the University of Evansville athletics department is proud to introduce the Aces DoubleTree Pregame Party on November 16, prior to the home contest against Southeast Missouri State.
Taking place from 4:30 p.m. through 7:00 p.m., the party will feature a pair of great speakers representing the Purple Aces. Head coach Marty Simmons kicks it off with an appearance at 5:15 p.m. At 6:15 p.m., 1999 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year and All-Centennial Team member Marcus Wilson will be on hand. The party will take place in the DoubleTree ballroom inside the hotel.
A full package, including entry to the party, is available for just $20 per person. The admission price covers the party, a full meal (menu is linked above), water/soda/lemonade/tea and parking in the DoubleTree parking garage. A cash bar will also be on hand. Your parking space at the garage is good through the completion of the game. The garage is connected to the DoubleTree, which is adjacent to the Ford Center via a walkway. When you arrive at the event, just bring your parking ticket to the party for it to be validated. You will be able to park, attend the event and take the skywalk to the Ford Center for the game without ever going outside!
If you would like to attend, please fill out the form that is linked above. This will help the chef to prepare enough food for those in attendance. Walk-ups are also welcome. Payment for the party will be made to DoubleTree upon your arrival on the 16th.
Is there a question or topic that you would like to have Marcus Wilson discuss at the party? We will be taking questions via social media that we will give to him. Those can be submitted at any time on Twitter (@UEAthletics) or Facebook (University of Evansville Athletic Department).
