It's rapidly approaching and this year with more flair. The William & Mary Athletics Department and Tribe basketball will host its annual Gold Rush Game, sponsored by University Advancement, in conjunction with W&M Charter Day on Saturday, Feb. 6. For the first time, a basketball game will be integrated into the Charter Day activities as the Tribe hosts Delaware at 2:30 p.m. in a game that will be televised nationally on the NBC Sports Network.
 
Along with creating an unforgettable atmosphere inside Kaplan Arena, the W&M Gold Rush wants to #PacktheKap with gold-clad Tribe fans. As a result, University Advancement is providing 6,000 free T-shirts to fans. For more information on the W&M's For the Bold campaign and powering the Tribe through scholarships, visit FortheBold.wm.edu. Boyer's Diamonds & Fine Jewelry continues its support of the Gold Rush Game, once again providing 3,000 gold pom-poms to be handed out at the door. Sodexo will also be giving out 1,000 Charter Day cookies for the fans to celebrate W&M's 323rd birthday.
 
Painting Kaplan gold won't be the only promotion at the Gold Rush Game on Charter Day. University Advancement is also sponsoring the halftime Charter Day Diaper Derby with a grand prize gift certificate to a local restaurant. Click here for more information and to register for the baby race.
 
The Alumni Association and Tribe Club are co-sponsoring a pre-game reception that includes a cash bar and free food in the Person Room. Registration for this limited-access event is available on the Alumni Association website.
