MyBB #WACgivesback Volunteer Opportunity
I may have harassed some of you on Twitter, but wanted to make a formal post here about it, too...

I was talking with a buddy recently and agreed that we would like to leave Vegas better than we found it when visiting for the WAC tourney in March. It made so much sense to us that we thought fans from other WAC schools might want in on it, too. So, we arranged for a group of 10 people to go serve a meal to the homeless and/or most vulnerable in Las Vegas that Saturday morning (3/10) from 9:00am to noon. The place is only 15 minutes away from the Orleans Arena and the first game isn't until 2:00pm, so the timing should work out.

We really want to see if we could get a group of people to serve from all different schools. I actually have a request in to the WAC to see if we can also get shirts and/or SWAG to represent the conference while serving together. The biggest challenge so far is realizing we really don't know many outside of GCU. That is where you all come in...

Most of you probably aren't going to Vegas for the conference tourney. If you are going, you may not be interested in rolling out of bed early Saturday morning for any reason. I totally get that. It is Vegas, baby! Really, we just wanted to put the opportunity on everyone's radar. If any of you guys are interested in joining, great. If you know anyone who will be in Vegas on that Saturday (regardless of how his/her/their teams do) and would be interested in serving with us, awesome.

I'm looking forward to representing our respective schools and collective conference in this way in the Las Vegas community. While space is limited (only 7 spots remaining), we really are hoping to have as many schools represented as possible. Feel free to direct any questions or people wanting to participate my way. I can also be reached by email at gleadley@yahoo.com. Thanks for the assist ahead of time in connecting us to folks from your respective fan bases!

I won't be participating but I admire what you guys are doing. The GCU fans on this site are pure class. No corn tortilla throwers here I'm sure of it!

Thanks, dancing. Just trying to make the world a little better place, right? S sorry to hear you won't be in Vegas for the tournament, but feel free to send any Aggie brethren you know are coming who may be interested my way.

We could probably fill our remaining spots with GCU folks pretty quickly, but prefer to have folks from other schools, too. I genuinely appreciate any help you can be in making it happen.
