Message from Coach Manning about Faculty/Staff Appreciation game

This message was emailed to faculty and staff on behalf of Coach Danny Manning by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

Dear Faculty and Staff-

As the semester comes to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a fantastic holiday season.

On Saturday, December 23, we host Tennessee from the SEC and I want to invite you and your family to attend the game. Wake Forest Athletics is offering free tickets and T-shirts to faculty and staff members and their families. The game is set for 12:30 PM at LJVM Coliseum.

Tickets will be distributed beginning at 11 AM at tables marked Faculty/Staff in the coliseum’s main lobby at the east entrance. Staff and faculty may come to the tables and show their Wake Forest ID card to request the number of tickets needed for their family. Athletics staff will distribute tickets at that time.

I hope to see you at the game.

Go Deacs!

Coach Danny Manning

Danny Manning Women's Basketball Clinic to be held Oct. 1

This is a guest post from the Department of Athletics:

The Wake Forest basketball program invites women from across the Triad to the 4th Annual Danny Manning Women’s Basketball Clinic coming to the LJVM Coliseum Sunday, Oct. 1. The fun begins at 5 p.m. and the clinic is great for those who are die-hard fans or those who just want to learn more about the game. Proceeds from the clinic benefit the Wake Forest Baptist Health Brenner Children’s Hospital and holiday shopping for area families in need.

Participants will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with wives of the Demon Deacons coaching staff, receive a gift bag and have the opportunity to win door prizes.

On the hoops side, head coach Danny Manning will address the clinic, everyone will participate in on-court drills learning the basics of offensive and defensive sets as well as an opportunity to be introduced on the floor in a similar fashion to how the Deacs take the court for contests – complete with a motorcycle entrance!

Light hors d’oeuvres will be served at the conclusion of the clinic and a cash bar is available. There is also plenty of opportunities for photos with the coaches, the Deacon and the motorcycle.

It is recommended that all participants dress casually with athletic shirts, shorts and sneakers.

Registration Information
$32 per person – Faculty & staff of Wake Forest University and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center
