Tiger women’s basketball to help S.D. Make-A-Wish

The DWU women's basketball team will help at a Make-A-Wish event Saturday in Fort Pierre.

MITCHELL, S.D. – The members of the Dakota Wesleyan University women’s basketball team are spending one of the last weekends of their summer vacations helping others and raising money for a good cause.

Saturday, the Tigers will be in Fort Pierre, S.D., helping with the 51st Anniversary of Oahe Dam celebration, which is donating proceeds to Make-A-Wish. The DWU women’s basketball team will help serve lunch and assist with the activities throughout the day.

The celebration includes a pork feed, auction, live music and fireworks. Tables in the restaurant are also available for purchase, and include a prime rib meal. All proceeds from the event benefit Make-A-Wish South Dakota, which helps make wishes come true for area kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
