WORCESTER, Mass. - The College of the Holy Cross' Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted an Athlete Date Auction on Thursday, March 19, to raise money for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Club of Worcester. In order to benefit this great cause, a few student athletes from each of Holy Cross' 27 varsity teams were auctioned off. Over $1,000 raised from the auction will be donated.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters was chosen as the recipient of the auction funds because approximately 80 percent of Holy Cross student-athletes are part of the program, maintaining a relationship as a big brother or sister throughout their stay in Worcester.
