Brent Jones to attend Dads and Daughters' Day

Submitted By Dawn Ellerbe

The Cal State University East Bay's (CSUEB) Pioneer Athletics Department has partnered with the Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative (BAWSI) and the San Francisco's 49ers Foundation to host Dads and Daughters' Day at the CSUEB women's basketball game on January 19, 2013. Former San Francisco 49er Brent Jones will speak at the pre-game gathering of dads and daughters. Entire families are welcome to attend.

BAWSI's programs create avenues for women athletes to make a positive difference in their communities. BAWSI Dads and Daughters is an initiative to encourage fathers to take their daughters to see female athletes compete as a way to inspire girls to play sports, go to college and achieve their goals.

The East Bay Pioneers are committed to developing students and communities by actively engaging in shared experiences.

"The Pioneers are thankful to be part of the BAWSI network in the Bay Area. Hosting the Dads and Daughters event means so much to our campus; Cal State East Bay strives to be a consistent and active member of our local community and to provide our student athletes with opportunities to be positive role models. The Dads and Daughters event is a great platform to encourage relationships, physical fitness and community," says Dawn Ellerbe Pioneer Assistant Athletic Director.

Led by BAWSI spokesman and former San Francisco 49er Brent Jones, BAWSI Dads and Daughters provides organized activities and group seating at local women's sports events.

"It is an honor to be involved in the Dads and Daughters program. There is nothing more rewarding than playing an integral part in helping to build your daughter's confidence and self-esteem. The Dads and Daughters program, with the focus on role models in women's sports, has given my girls the opportunity to dream, play and achieve while sharing a passion with their Dad - sports!" says former San Francisco 49er Brent Jones.

The Cal State East Bay Pioneers Dads and Daughters event is on Saturday, January 19 at 4:30 pm starting with a Meet and Greet with Brent Jones at the University Theater, followed by a Q &A session. The event will then move to Pioneer Gym for tip off of the Pioneer Women's Basketball game vs. UC San Diego at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and include admission for two to the Meet and Greet and two tickets to the Pioneer Basketball double header vs. UC San Diego. Additional tickets to the event can be purchased for $1. Although the event is named Dads and Daughters, all parents are welcome to attend. The event is open to the public. Please RSVP by January 16, 2013.

Campus parking permits are $5 and parking is enforced 24 hours, seven days-a-week.
