Volunteer to help at DACC's tournament


DANVILLE — In a few weeks, 16 basketball teams from across the nation will travel to Danville Area Community College with the hope of winning a national championship. And they can only do that with the help of area residents.

For the 20th year, DACC — and the Vermilion County area — will serve as host for the National Junior College Athletic Association Men’s Division II National Basketball Tournament.

Organizers seek volunteers during the afternoon and evening sessions to help the tournament run smoothly for all involved.

Those who volunteer will receive free admission to all five days and 26 games of the tournament for themselves and their immediate families; access to the hospitality room and all of its great food from local suppliers; and tournament wear. They also will receive the appreciation of organizers, players and those in the audience.
