Fourth Annual Mr. Crusader Set For Monday Night At 7:00
The fourth annual Mr. Crusader event will take place Monday night at 7:00 p.m. inside the Wheeler Center. Admission is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the Student Athlete Advisory Committee and benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
This year’s contestants are:
- Steph-Yves Louis-Track & Field
- Drexler Clark-Basketball
- David Radoszewski-Volleyball
- David Fox-Lacrosse
- Brandon Conroy-Wrestling
- Juan Lopez-Soccer
- Conner McMann-Tennis
- Sam Grise-Baseball
The audience will have the chance to give money/change (their way of voting for the participant they like best) after each segment. The competition includes an opening dance, an interview segment, a talent portion and an obstacle course. The contestant with the most money at the end of the night will be crowned Mr. Crusader, with all the proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In addition to competition, there will also be a tennis ball fundraiser. The audience will have two opportunities throughout the night to purchase tennis balls: between the interviews and the talent show. Those who bought tennis balls will try to throw them into a trash can from a certain distance. Whoever makes the ball into the trash can will receive half the money from the tennis ball purchases, with the rest of the money going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
