Members of the Rock Spring Club in West Orange, NJ hosted several Seton Hall Athletics administrators for a "meet and greet" with club members on Wednesday, June 15, 2011.
In attendance were Patrick Lyons, Athletics Director, Kevin Willard, Men's Basketball Head Coach, Patrick Hobbs, Dean of the Law School and Bryan Felt, Director of Pirate Blue.
Over 35 Rock Spring Club members were on hand for the casual reception and used the opportunity to ask questions and mingle with the Seton Hall representatives. "Events such as these are a great way for us to build our fan base and create a sense of pride for Seton Hall Athletics," said Lyons. "Our future success depends on the support of alumni and friends throughout our community and across the country."
The event was organized by Pirate Blue supporter, Hank D'Alessandro '85, co-chair of the Board of Regents Sub-Committee for Athletics. "An event like this offers an opportunity to let those in the community see just how impressive our athletics leadership is, while also encouraging them to support Pirate Athletics."
"It's important to put a face with the program," said Willard. "This gives us the chance to get out there and meet everybody, get them excited about our athletics program and the basketball program, while getting them interested in buying season tickets and supporting the team."
