CORPUS CHRISTI – With men's basketball season rapidly approaching, Islanders Athletics has several exciting promotions already scheduled for the upcoming year. Included in the list are charitable donation drives, discounted tickets, giveaways and plenty of other reasons to be in the seats at the American Bank Center this year.
Also included among this year's promotions is the second annual Hoops for Blue Scholars Program. Fans are encouraged to donate a certain dollar amount per Islanders basket with proceeds going to the One Hundred Club Scholarship, benefitting families of those who serve the Corpus Christi community. Last year, the event raised nearly $11,000.
