Four years ago, some dude named Sean tried raising money to send underprivileged kids to the Texas Bowl to watch the Syracuse Orange take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This amazing community (and plenty of outside help, too) ended up raising over $44,444 for the cause. You may remember it received some attention. Andy remembers meeting a kid we sent there. It was a big deal.
Given all of that, we’re going to try and do it again. And this time, let’s make sure a bunch of kids in Orlando get to watch Eric Dungey do Eric Dungey things, while the Orange hopefully beat the West Virginia Mountaineers and earn win No. 10 on the year.
You probably know the drill by now: Can’t make it the Camping World Bowl? Let’s work to send a local kid in your stead. Plan on joining? Meet me down there and we’ll start a “Let’s Go Orange” with all the kids we’re hopefully able to send. The money donated also aims to hook them up with t-shirts and food at the game, too.
We’re incredibly excited to say that we’re working directly with Syracuse Athletics for tickets this year. We’re still figuring out exactly which kids will be going (side note: if you know any organizations or schools in Orlando, hit us up!), but we will be sending some, we promise, and they will be sitting in Orange-designated sections!
So let’s get started: Initial goal is to get to $14,444 (DONATE HERE) which should hopefully cover tickets, food and a shirt for 130 kids. Can we hit that TNIAAM-ers? Let’s get giving again this holiday season!
