This event was an immediate success, and has gotten even bigger. If you want to go, you better step up to the ticket plate!

The University of Montana Softball program's annual "Meet the Griz Team Dinner and Fundraiser" is Saturday, February 3, with an RSVP deadline of January 29. The event is held at the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown. Doors open at 5:30, dinner at 6:30. You'll enjoy a buffet menu of salad, pasta and chicken, and a kids' menu of fruit, chicken fingers and fries.

Highlights include a Griz softball player at your dinner table, raffles, live and silent auctions, team introductions and highlights of the 2017 Big Sky Conference tourney championship season.

Tickets are only $30 for adults and $20 for kids 12 and under. Only 400 tickets will be sold for the event. Sound like a lot? It was close to a sellout last year and its popularity continues to build.

Get your tickets by contacting new Griz head coach Melanie Meuchel at 406-243-4338 or The Lady Griz basketball team plays that afternoon, so you'll be all Grizzed up anyway and ready to go!
