With a week to go before the start of the 2014 Syracuse Orange football season, it's probably a good time to answer the question, "What's up with #CuseTixForKids and who's using the tickets?"
Let's delve in.
As a reminder, we raised enough money to purchase 20 season tickets in Section 323 for all six home games in the Carrier Dome as well as a food voucher for each person. Our plan is to distribute tickets and vouchers for each game to a different charity so that kids and others who couldn't otherwise attend a game will get the chance.
First, we currently have three games accounted for.
That leaves three games we need to fill.
Friday, August 29 vs. Villanova
Saturday, September 20 vs. Maryland
Saturday, November 1 vs. North Carolina State
You may have noticed one of those games is rapidly approaching. We've got some emails and calls out to a couple charities but I'm all for any help anyone might have in lining up a participant quickly. Either share some info in the comments or contact me via email/Twitter.
The people we've spoken with are pretty excited about the games. Let's keep it going!
