We are excited to announce the all-new CBT Celebrity Classic Basketball Game. This new Coming Back Together event will feature Orange greats Derrick Coleman ’90, Lazarus Sims ’96, Lawrence Moten ’95, Etan Thomas ’00, and Davita Carpenter ’91, Eric Devendorf ’09, Roland Grimes ’86, Mark Pryor ’90, Tatiana Warren ’04, and more. Open to students, alumni, and the Syracuse community, proceeds from the game will benefit the Undergraduate Black-Hispanic Endowed Scholarship Fund.
“When planning CBT 2017 we were exploring ideas for new events that would be fun and unique to our weekend while also raising money for our important scholarship funds,” says Rachel Vassel ’91, assistant vice president, Office of Program Development. “It is our hope that the CBT Celebrity Classic, which fits the bill perfectly, will appeal to people on the Hill and off. We want to see alumni and local families coming out, cheering on the players, and just having a great time with their friends and neighbors.”
Tickets for CBT registrants are $10 through August 24. On August 25, gymnasium ticket prices increase to $20. Starting on August 25, on-site auditorium seating (simulcast screening of the game, but not live viewing) tickets are available for $10. Tickets are limited. Proceeds benefit Syracuse University’s Our Time Has Come Endowed Scholarship for Black and Latino students in need. Tickets are available online and at the door. *Please note, this event is not included in CBT registration.
