CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Austin Peay State University athletics department, along with Wendy's of Clarksville, will be hosting a Wendy's Chili Dinner and Silent Auction to benefit Coaches vs. Cancer, Saturday night, when Murray State comes to the Dunn Center for a women/men's doubleheader.
Last season, Austin Peay and Murray State fans combined to raise more than $2,000 at the event - a total expected to be surpassed, Saturday. Fans are invited to the Dunn Center third level (east side) between the end of the women's game and beginning of the men's game to eat.
As an added bonus, fans will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items which include a vintage autographed James "Fly" Williams poster as well as a basketball autographed by five mid-state college basketball coaches.
This is the second year for the Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser, a derivative event from the American Cancer Society's Coaches vs. Cancer Tipoff luncheon that took place in November. Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide partnership between the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the American Cancer Society.
Following the game, the Austin Peay National Alumni Association is hosting its first "Overtime at Edward's" event. Govs fans are invited to this free postgame event following the first three of Austin Peay's four Saturday OVC doubleheaders. Located at 107 Franklin Street in downtown Clarksville, Edward's Steakhouse will provide free appetizers while supplies last.
