The Davidson Wildcats mens basketball team challenged Vanderbilt at its 6th annual Black Out Belk fundraising game. Fans were encouraged to wear black in support of their team. Proceeds from the game benefited the David Burns Memorial Family Trust.
Burns, a former Davidson College basketball player, died unexpectedly in October 2011 at age 34. The trust was started by friends to help support his wife Amanda, a former Davidson College cheerleader, and their three young sons.
Special Black Out Belk T-shirts were available for $10 at Cats on Main, The Campus Store, and at the game, with proceeds going to the trust. A silent auction, held in the lobby during the game, included a Stephen Curry signed Davidson jersey, Curry/Bob McKillop signed ball, and a Cheerleader for a Day package.
