Special Event at Purdue vs. Louisville and UNC vs. Indiana Games on November 30 Will Benefit Disabled American Veterans

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – NOVEMBER 29, 2016 – On November 30th, Big Ten and ACC fans have the opportunity to compete at the game for a four-day, three-night vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, along with a prize package from SPY Optics. Visit Myrtle Beach, in partnership with Learfield, will be onsite during the ACC/Big Ten Challenge at both Louisville and Indiana for fans to enter the "Visit Myrtle Beach Challenge." The promotion will benefit Disabled American Veterans, (DAV). 

During each game, one fan from each of the four teams (two individuals at each game) will be selected to compete in the on court basketball challenge. Not only will the winners receive a Myrtle Beach vacation and a SPY Optics prize pack, but DAV, a national nonprofit that provides lifetime support for veterans of all generations and their families, will receive the same prize package at each game to give to two deserving veterans and their families. 

"We're excited and grateful that Visit Myrtle Beach has partnered with DAV to bestow such a wonderful gift to a deserving hero and their family," said DAV National Commander David Riley. "I can't think of a better way to start the holiday season."

To enter, fans should stop by the Visit Myrtle Beach table in the concourse at the game they are attending on November 30.
