The Santa Clara men's basketball program will host the First Annual "Bag Toss" Fundraising Tournament on Sunday, October 11th in the Leavey Center on campus.

Alumni, Former players, family, friends supporters of the program are invited to attend.

The event will include an open bar, appetizers and opportunity to meet and hang out with the 2009-10 Bronco men's basketball team.

In addition, the men's basketball program will have an auction with great items to bid on such as, road trips with the team to Gonzaga, L.A., the WCC Tournament and MUCH more.

"Bag Toss" is an exciting and fun game that anyone can play. It is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden box platforms and bean bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their bean bags at the hole in the platform until a contestant reaches the score of 15 points. A bean bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.

If you can aim and toss a bean bag, you can master the game - it's great for everyone.
