NEW ORLEANS - Tulane volleyball is encouraging fans to wear white shirts - preferably the Devon Walker 18 shirts - on Friday night to their home match against Louisiana Tech at 7 p.m. for the "White Out Devlin for Devon" at Devlin Fieldhouse.
Tulane volleyball is having one of the best seasons in program history, and with Devlin Fieldhouse sure to be packed against an in-state Conference USA opponent in Louisiana Tech, the Green Wave have asked that fans pay tribute to Walker, a former Green Wave football player who was injured in a game at Tulsa last season.
Donations will be accepted at the entrances of Devlin Fieldhouse, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Devon's Den, a privately funded project providing needed materials and services for the care of Walker.
In addition to fans wearing their white Walker shirts, the Tulane Green Wave gift shop will have new Devon Walker merchandise on sale. Proceeds from merchandise sales also go towards Devon's Den.
As a thank you to all of the Green Wave season ticket holders, the Tulane Ticket Office is giving two free tickets to Friday night's match to each season ticket holder. All current football, men's basketball an women's basketball season ticket holders are eligible for the promotion. Call 504-862-8223 to speak with Jacqueline Donelon to reserve the tickets.
Single game tickets will be available for $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for children.
For single-game ticket information, contact the Tulane Athletics Ticket Office at (504) 861-WAVE (9283). Group discounts are available when ten or more tickets are purchased.
The Tulane Ticket Office is located on the first floor of the James W. Wilson, Jr. Center and is open weekdays from 8:30 am to 5 pm. For additional information, log onto the official website at www.TulaneGreenWave.com.
