The UCSB swimming and diving programs will celebrate the 60th birthday of head coach Gregg Wilson - who is now in his 35th season with the program - by hosting a Casino Night on Saturday, Oct. 2 during the annual Alumni Weekend.

The event will be hosted at Corwin Pavilion on the UCSB campus. Tickets start at $40 and include dinner, cocktails, and chips for gambling. A $75 ticket can also be purchased and will include additional chips for gambling.

In addition to the dinner and gambling, there will be various auction items up for bid at the event.

All proceeds will benefit the UCSB men's and women's swimming and diving programs.

In his previous 34 seasons at the helm of the Gauchos' swim programs, Wilson has led UCSB to a combined 39 Big West Conference Championships (26 men's titles and 13 women's titles) and has been named the Big West Conference Coach of the Year 27 times. This season, Wilson and his Gauchos will undertake new challenges as the men move to the Pac-10 Conference and the women join the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.
