WASHINGTON - Millions of people living on the East Coast of the United States were impacted in some way or another by Hurricane Sandy last week and with many Georgetown student-athletes coming from the New York and New Jersey area, Hoya student-athletes are stepping up to help the recovery effort. The Georgetown University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be holding a fundraiser over the next week, "Athletes Support Hurricane Relief."

"In some way or another, all of us were affected by the storm last week," Georgetown SAAC President, senior women's lacrosse player Lauren Gray said. "Many of our teammates or friends from other teams and even our classmates come from that area and either had their families affected or friends affected. We are coming together as a group to just try and do something so that we can help."

The fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross, will be going all week and run through Sunday, Nov. 11.

Donations can be made in the Georgetown training room in McDonough Arena, in the weight room at Yates Fieldhouse or through each team's SAAC representative.

Representatives from SAAC will also be present at events this weekend to collect donations. Games include the women's basketball season opener on Friday, Nov. 9 (7:30 p.m.) against Sacred Heart; the football game on Saturday, Nov. 10 (1 p.m.) against Bucknell and the men's basketball home opener on Sunday, Nov. 11 (6:30 p.m.) against Duquesne at Verizon Center.
