University of Iowa students representing several different official UI clubs, organizations and intercollegiate athletics teams will be soliciting donations at the Iowa-Iowa State wrestling event Saturday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, the Iowa-Iowa State women’s basketball game Sunday at Carver, and the Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game next Friday night at Carver.

All donations received will be added to the proceeds generated from the sale of tickets to the “Meet and Greet” event involving 2008 U.S. Olympian Shawn Johnson being staged by Mediacom and the Big Ten Network, and the proceeds generated from the sale of raffle tickets to meet actor Ashton Kutcher at the premier of his latest movie, Personal Effects.”

The event featuring Shawn Johnson will take place from 4:15-6:30 p.m., Dec. 12, at the Levitt Center on the UI campus. Persons interested in purchasing ticket to that event can do so online at MediacomFlood Relief.com and at the Mediacom payment centers at 702 Gilbert Street in Iowa City and 6300 Council Street, NE in Cedar Rapids.

Raffle tickets for the opportunity to meet Kutcher are also available for purchase online at MediacomFloodRelief.com. Kutcher will visit with four winners and their guests prior to personally introducing the movie at Iowa City’s historic Englert Theater.

Johnson and Kutcher both plan to attend the Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game but will be there as spectators and will not be available for autographs or photographs.
