The Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program, funded by the Mental Health & Recovery Services Board of Lucas County, has partnered with The University of Toledo to sponsor the women’s basketball game against Northern Illinois Saturday, March 7.

The Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program’s sponsorship is designed to help raise awareness about the opiate and heroin epidemic that is occurring throughout Lucas County.

Dr. Caren Steinmiller, UToledo associate lecturer of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics, will receive the game ball.

Literature about opiate and heroin abuse prevention and available services will be distributed at vendor tables in the lobby before the game.

The Rockets and the Huskies tip off at 2 p.m.

Full-time UToledo employees and retirees may purchase two tickets at half-price. Additional tickets may be purchased at the full price. UToledo students are admitted to home games free with ID.

To purchase tickets, stop by the UT Athletic Ticket Office, located in the Sullivan Athletic Complex at Savage Arena, go to the Toledo Women’s Basketball Ticket Central Website, or call 419.530.GOLD (4653).
