Night of Hope returns to UConn

A year ago, "Night of Hope" came at a time that the UConn community was still mourning the death of star football player Jasper Howard.

About 400 students came out for the fundraising event for Geno's Cancer Team. It was a rather impressive event with performances by a pair of student a capella groups and a series of speeches.

The word is that the event which begins tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at UConn's Student Union Theater is going to be bigger and better. There were some conflicts with fratenities and sororities a year ago and that is not the case this year.

Free pink wristbands will be given out as will Victoria's Secret gifts to the first 75 women.

There is a $5 donation required to be admitted to the event and those unable to attend who wish to make a donation can do so at www.genoscancerteam.com.
