WILMINGTON, North Carolina –The popular “Fans with Cans” ticket promotion returns on Saturday when the UNCW women’s basketball team hosts Northern Kentucky in a 2 p.m. matinee at Trask Coliseum.

Fans can donate canned goods to the Food Bank at Wilmington, the Port City branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, during the contest with the Norse as part of the "Fans with Cans" promotion. Fans who bring three cans of food will receive a voucher for a $3 ticket.

"The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is so proud to be partnered with the Seahawks,” said Jeff Rose, director of the food bank, which serves Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover and Pender counties. “’Fans with Cans’ is an incredible event where Seahawk fans donate canned goods to our neighbors in need.  We hope the Seahawk community can rise to challenge of helping others less fortunate.“

Supporters wishing to donate or volunteer with the Food Bank of Wilmington can find more information on the organization's website at www.foodbankcenc.org.
