FULTON, MO -- The William Woods University athletics department and Cost Cutters of Mid-Missouri will hold a joint fundraising effort to assist SERVE, Inc. The event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23, in Anderson Arena on the campus of William Woods.

William Woods will host an American Midwest Conference (AMC) basketball doubleheader versus Columbia College, and proceeds from the gate will be donated to Fulton's SERVE, Inc. The doors to Anderson Arena open at 1 p.m.

Cost Cutters of Mid-Missouri will sell hair care products, as well as vouchers for haircuts at any Mid-Missouri location. Proceeds from the sale of the products and the haircuts will be donated to SERVE, Inc.

Donations can also be made throughout the afternoon, as well. Steve Mallinckrodt, SERVE, Inc. executive director, and his staff, will assist with the fundraising efforts.
"SERVE is very excited and appreciative of this effort by WWU athletics and Cost Cutters," said Mallinckrodt. "The money raised will help feed families in Callaway County., I encourage everyone to 'come on out' and enjoy some great college basketball while at the same time helping SERVE continue to provide critical assistance to people in Callaway County."

The William Woods University athletics department began a corporate sponsorship program during the summer of 2012. To date, 16 companies have joined the ever-growing list of sponsors. As part of their corporate sponsorship, Cost Cutters expressed an interest in helping the Fulton community through a philanthropic activity.

As a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), William Woods University has been recognized as a Champions of Character Institution. The program encompasses Five Core Values: Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship and Servant Leadership. The joint fundraising effort will serve as one of the department's servant- leadership projects.

"We are very grateful to have Cost Cutters as one of our corporate sponsors," said WWU Athletics Director Jason Vittone. "This is a great opportunity for our university to partner with a local business and give back to the Fulton community. If you haven't had an opportunity to come to Anderson Arena and watch the Owls play, Feb. 23 would be a great day to make a visit. If you have yet to become a fan of the Owls, I think you will be when the day is over."

Admission for the AMC doubleheader is $5. Feb. 23 is also Senior Day at William Woods. The Owls will recognize this year's senior class between games.
