Grab Your Spades Partner & Head To Charlotte For Your Chance To Win $2000 At CIAA
By Stephanie Ogbogu
What started as an April Fool’s joke sent out by the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) office last year, has gained so much momentum online that it was only right that they had to make it happen.
This year, CIAA will be hosting its first-ever spades tournament during the CIAA Toyota Fan Fest, taking place February 28 -29th at the Charlotte Convention Center. 200 teams of two will be facing off for an opportunity to win $2,000. Winner takes all!
“The number of calls to our office was amazing. Families, friends, and co-workers were ready to sign up immediately,” said Jacqie McWilliams, CIAA Commissioner. “Spades is part of the HBCU and African-American community across the country. As a former HBCU graduate, the game of spades was part of our recreational activities. There are not many family reunions or social gatherings without a competitive game of spades. We’re thrilled to bring more family-friendly fun to our 75th anniversary Fan Fest.”
