Toledo will hold its fifth annual Cake, Rattle & Roll Monday, Oct. 24, in Savage Arena. The musical squares fundraiser will be hosted by the Rockets from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The cost is $45 per person, $85 per couple, and $10 per child age 12 and younger with all proceeds going to the UT women’s basketball program.
Attendees also can reserve a 10-person table for $500 or purchase the MVP package for $1,000 that includes a reserved table for 10 and an honorary coach package for two. The honorary coach package includes two loge seats at a home game, two pre-game meals with the team, access to shoot-around on game day, and pre-game talk in the locker room.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., followed by a short program featuring four-time Olympic gold medalist and current Indiana Fever player Tamika Catchings and the cake walks. Attendees will listen to live music by area band Nine Lives and eat food donated by local restaurants while vying for numerous prizes.
“I’m thrilled that we can bring one of the most decorated basketball players in the country to our arena for this special event,” three-time Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year Tricia Cullop said. “Not only is she an incredible player, but she is a great person who will have a very inspired message.”
Voted by fans as one of the top 15 players in WNBA history, Catchings is a 10-time WNBA All-Star, a 12-time All-WNBA selection, and is famous for recording the first ever quintuple-double (25 points, 18 rebounds, 11 assists, 10 steals and 10 blocks in 1997) in league history.
