As part of the ongoing commitment of Northern Illinois Athletics to community engagement, a “Breakfast with Bennett” is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22 at the Lincoln Inn in downtown DeKalb.
The event will serve as an opportunity for fans to talk with women’s basketball coach Kathi Bennett and other coaches at NIU over breakfast.
“This is a great way to engage with fans in the community,” Bennett said. “It’s important to reach out, maintain and build these relationships so we can rally support for our basketball program. Lincoln Inn is a great spot to do all that, so I hope fans bring their appetite and are ready to talk basketball.”
The inaugural breakfast, with more to follow throughout the rest of the academic year, takes place in the banquet room of the Lincoln Inn, 240 E. Lincoln Hwy. Fans can mingle with Coach Bennett, basketball staff members and special guests from NIU Intercollegiate Athletics, followed up by a chalk talk presentation by Bennett.
The cost to attend the breakfast, paid to Lincoln Inn, is $10 with food, drink and wait service included. Space is limited to 42 people and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
