Gardner-Webb Night at ALWS

Gardner-Webb Alums to Gather at the American Legion World Series on Aug. 17


The final weeks of summer bring with them an annual event that the entire community enjoys—the American Legion World Series (ALWS) festivities begin Aug. 7 and continue through Aug. 21. This year, Gardner-Webb alumni have a very special reason to join in the fun.

Officials with Gardner-Webb University’s Office of Alumni Relations are hosting “Gardner-Webb Night” on Friday, Aug. 17 beginning at 6 p.m. at Shelby High School’s Keeter Stadium. The event will offer alumni a chance to gather together, enjoy a spread of game-day fare, and watch all the action on the baseball diamond at Veteran’s Field.

“We are excited to offer our alumni the VIP experience at Gardner-Webb Night at the American Legion World Series,” shared Leah Clevenger, director of Alumni Relations. “This evening at the ballpark will be all about connecting with our alumni, hearing their stories and gifting them with a fun and memorable evening. We can’t wait for August 17!”

Alumni can register for up to four (4) free tickets to the game with access to the Gardner-Webb VIP tent.
