Toledo will hold its sixth annual Cake, Rattle & Roll Thursday, Oct. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium. The musical squares fundraiser hosted by the Rocket women’s basketball team.

The cost is $55 per person, $100 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 an eight-person table for $500 or purchase the MVP package for $1,000, which includes a reserved table for eight and a signed Toledo basketball.

“This annual event is a fun fundraiser,” three-time Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year Tricia Cullop said. “It provides our fans the opportunity to interact with the players and coaches. This event also gives them a great chance to walk away with some pretty cool prizes.”

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., followed by a short program featuring Minnesota Lynx Head Coach Cheryl Reeve and three cake walks. Attendees will hear live music by area band Nine Lives and sample food donated by local restaurants while vying for numerous prizes.

Reeve is by percentage the winningest coach in WNBA history and has won the most postseason games of any coach in league history. She also was named the WNBA Coach of the Year in 2011 and 2016.

“We’re very honored to have Cheryl speak at this year’s event,” Cullop said. “She is one of the, if not the, top coach in our sport.”
