Long Branch, N.J. – More than 100 Monmouth Medical Center employees and their family members traveled recently to Monmouth University’s new Multi-Purpose Activities Center to watch the Monmouth University Hawks’ men’s basketball team win defeat cross-state rivals Fairleigh Dickinson.
As a part of the Monmouth Medical Center Night promotion, free tickets were distributed to hospital employees and their families, who showed their hospital spirit by wearing Monmouth Medical Center T-shirts they received with their tickets. Children of hospital staff enjoyed free admission to the Kid-Zone and to the court during starting line-up for the high-five tunnel, free Monmouth University Hawks T-shirts and the post-game meet-and-greet/autograph session with players, coaches and the Hawk mascot.
In 2012, Monmouth Medical Center signed-on as a sponsor of Monmouth University Athletics for the 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 athletic seasons. As a part of this sponsorship, Monmouth sponsors the radio “Injury Report” with the in-game radio show during both football and basketball games.
