TEMPE – The Arizona State University Sun Devil Club, in conjunction with Sun Devil Athletics, will host the annual 2014 Signing Day Reception at the Tempe Mission Palms on Wednesday, Feb. 5, beginning at 5:30 p.m. MT.
The event allows fans to become the first to hear about ASU’s 2014 football signing class with Head Coach Todd Graham and the rest of the Sun Devil football coaching staff in attendance to talk about the incoming student-athletes that have signed their National Letters of Intent to Arizona State.
“The Sun Devil fans and alumni are pivotal to the continued success and advancement of this football program and this athletic department and I am very proud of that fact,” head coach Todd Graham said. “This event allows us a chance to get to know those fans and alumni on a more personal level and provide them an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the great student-athletes that will be joining the ASU family – many of whom might not be here if not for the continued and emphatic support from Sun Devil Nation. “
In addition to having a chance to mingle with the Sun Devil coaching staff, the event will offer fans their first chance to meet Ray Anderson, who will be taking part in his first public function as ASU’s new Vice President for University Athletics and Athletics Director.
The event is open to all parties at a cost of $60 per person with tables of 10 available for $600. For $750, attendees may purchase a table of eight that will also include a member of the Sun Devil coaching staff joining them for the reception.
All funds raised from the event will go directly to the Sun Devil Athletics recruiting budget.
The event is located at the Tempe Mission Palms at 60 E. Fifth St, Tempe, Ariz., 85281. The reception will get underway at 5:30 p.m. with the program scheduled to commence at 6:30 p.m. The event is casual attire and will end at approximately 8:30 p.m.
“We know how much our football team means to the community in the Valley and we continue to find ways to make those fans and alumni feel like an integral part of this program, because they are,” said Rocky Harris, ASU Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations. “The signing day reception is one of many events we try and provide for Sun Devil nation to serve as our way of saying thank you for all that you do for Sun Devil Athletics.”
