ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition TV crew to be on site at Monarchs Feb. 2 basketball game
NORFOLK - The television crews and on-air talent Xzibit from ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be on site Wednesday, February 2 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center when the Old Dominion University Monarchs take on Delaware at 7 p.m.
Old Dominion University is participating in this week's Extreme Food Drive, as part of ABC's television show, which is in Virginia Beach this week constructing a home for the family of Beverly Hill, her husband Fred Burdette and their six adopted children, all of whom came to them through the foster system. Beverly Hill runs a small operation to feed the homeless from her home near Lynnhaven Mall.
Fans are asked to bring at least one non-perishable food item to the game Wednesday in a community wide effort to collect a record-breaking number of food items for the Foodbanks of Southeastern Virginia, the Peninsula and the Albemarle in Northeastern North Carolina.
At halftime of the contest, show designer and rapper Xzibit will tape a segment to be included during the show's one-hour broadcast later this year, indicating Hampton Roads support of the family and the Foodbanks. The ODU sailing team has been collecting a "boat-load of food" for the past few weeks and will roll a sailboat onto the floor as part of the halftime festivities. Old Dominion is asking fans to remain seated at halftime to participate in the taping and to bring their loudest cheering voices.
