A team of MSU luminaries will gather at a unique fundraiser that unites the Spartan Nation in raising $1 million to fight Parkinson’s disease—or, as Kirk Gibson has nicknamed it, “Parky.” The Gibby & Friends vs. Parky pregame tailgate will be hosted in MSU’s Kellogg Center at 4:00 this Saturday September 23, four hours before the Notre Dame football game that kicks off at 8:00 that evening. On that same day Gibson will be on campus as MSU will honor his accomplishments by retiring his football jersey at halftime of the game.
Gibby talks about the event with Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon, Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis, and MSU alumnus Peter Secchia, who is spearheading the effort and helping to organize the event.
Greg Ianni is MSU’s deputy athletic director and oversees facilities and sports management. He joins Simon and Hollis on MSU Today to update progress on some of the construction projects currently underway on campus.
