Every year, DePaul athletics impacts Chicagoland by inviting area youth to attend athletics events through Blue Demon Field Trips. It is more than providing children with tickets for a fun day of memories. In many cases that trip to a DePaul event gives a glimpse into the vibrant nature of college life.
Each year, we receive pictures and notes of thanks from the children who attend our field trip days, many with the message “I can’t wait until I come to DePaul for college”. After about two decades of attendance, we have now seen teachers come back with groups and actually say "I came to field trip day as a student."
This year we would like to extend our field trip day experience to the BIG EAST Women’s basketball tournament. To maximize the impact of the Blue Demon Field Trip Days, we need your help to provide resources to make this a reality - we need your help with Blue Demon Field Trip to the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to provide Chicagoland children’s groups a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Wintrust Arena for the 2018 BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament.
