RAF Held Extra Pass Club Event In Mendenhall Center

Jan. 24, 2013

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Several weeks ago, the Rebel Athletic Fund (RAF) and UNLV men's basketball held an exclusive event for its Extra Pass Club members at the Mendenhall Center, the Runnin' Rebels' state-of-the-art practice facility.

All Extra Pass Club members had the opportunity to take a family/team photo with the Runnin' Rebels - one of many perks to being an Extra Pass Club member.

The Extra Pass Club consists of 32 members all contributing $3,000 or more which goes solely to UNLV men's basketball, to provide additional resources above the operating budget.

So far this year, the club has generated over $100,000!

The money generated from the EPC has bought new laptops for the student-athletes to use for class purposes, a shooting machine and subsidized the trip to Canada among other things.

Additionally, the money will fund a chartered plane for the team to fly to Wyoming for its game on February 23.

"We are pleased with the direction of our men's basketball program, and the commitment that the Extra Pass Club members have made gives us the opportunity to be even better," said head coach Dave Rice. "We are grateful for the support they have shown and will continue to provide."
