BRISTOL, Tenn. – A student organization at King College will help raise funds and food for the Second Harvest Food Bank with a fundraising raffle this weekend. Fans attending this Saturday night’s men’s basketball game can donate to enter for a chance to win a 16 GB iPod Touch.

The Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) organization will hold and fundraiser and canned food drive leading up to and during Saturday night’s men’s basketball game versus Bluefield State. Fans that donate three cans of non-perishable food will receive one ticket toward the drawing toward a 16 GB iPod Touch.

Fans in attendance may also make monetary donations and still have a chance to win. With every two dollars given, donors will receive one ticket toward the raffle. All proceeds will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee.

Donations will be taken until halftime of the men’s basketball game, right before the drawing for the prize. All donations will be taken in the main lobby of the Student Center.

The Tornado (6-0) will host the Bluefield State Big Blues (0-5) in the Student Center Complex as they look to stay undefeated on the season. King, who received votes in the latest NABC Coaches Top 25 Poll, come off a close 78-74 win over Queens (N.C.). Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. Last year, the Tornado defeated the Big Blues 97-78 at the Currence Classic, hosted by BSC.
