Duke's Scheyer giving back

Senior guard Jon Scheyer is capitalizing on the notoriety he achieved while leading Duke to the NCAA championship with an event designed to give back to the community.

On May 1, the Jon Scheyer Foundation will hold "May Madness: Gaming to Give" from noon to 5 p.m. at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The event will feature Halo 3 and FIFA 2010 Xbox video game tournaments, as well as live music by Nautical Young, Speak of the Devil and Point Break. In addition, Scheyer and members of the 2010 NCAA championship team will sign autographs.

General admission for May Madness will be $10 at the door, and Duke students will be admitted for $5 with their student ID. Children under the age of 12 will be admitted free of charge.

Entry forms for the video game tournaments can be found on Proceeds from May Madness will benefit the Jimmy V Foundation and the Emily K Center in Durham.
