We did not get enough interest in the event Sunday to meet our 20 person minimum so the event is cancelled. The tickets at the door for the game are still $5 if you would like to attend. We will be sending refunds to those who prepaid for the event.

We are looking into another Purdue sporting event for 2019. Please share any suggestions you may have with Milissa at


The Tippy Arc has the opportunity to attend the Purdue Women’s Basketball game on Sunday, February 17th at 2:00 pm for $5 per person. This will include a trip down to the court after the game with a group picture and shooting free throws. This is also the annual PINK OUT for cancer awareness. The first thousand people get a free Hammer Down Cancer t-shirt.

I apologize for the late notice of this invitation. February has slipped away from me and I thought we had another week. ☹

We will take RSVP’s now to starting now. Please DO NOT respond to this email with an RSVP.

We also need to prepay for tickets. The tickets will be available for pick up on Wednesday at The Arc Office- Greenbush Arnett Clinic Room 320- from 3 to 6 pm.
