GC Athletics Announces Staff Council Day Saturday

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College basketball doubleheader set for Saturday, Jan. 26 at 1:30 p.m. will now play host to Staff Council Day, honoring the faculty and staff at Georgia College.

All Faculty/Staff and their families will get free admission when showing a GC ID Saturday as the Bobcats take on Young Harris College. All Georgia College employees will also receive a voucher for free popcorn at the front door.

Saturday is already a jam-packed day full of fun at the Centennial Center, as the Bobcats take on the newest member of the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) in Young Harris.

The Saturday action will also feature another Zaxby’s Kids Zone, complete with a bounce house, coloring, games and much more. The day will also feature two more halftime performances for GC’s Got Talent, as music composition major Daniel Hearn will play the piano, and Jeff Crain will partner up for an amazing swing-style dance.

Saturday is also Play for Abe Day, as half of all tickets sold through John Milledge Academy will go to the family of Abram Gainous, the son of Bobcat men’s basketball assistant coach Mark Gainous, as Abe continues his costly battle with Childhood Leukemia.
