UPDATE: We were able to send the tickets for the Villanova game to Syracuse Northeast Community Center. Woo!!!
The 2014 Syracuse Orange football season is literally a day away so it's probably a good idea to check in on #CuseTixForKids and make sure we're all set.
Well, we'll get to that in a second, but first some good news...
Here are the five games that we have lined up and secured charities for during the season. For each game, the charity will get 20 game tickets in Section 323 as well as 20 food vouchers for free Dome dogs and drinks.
Saturday, September 20 vs. Maryland - Big Brothers Big Sisters
Friday, October 3 vs. Louisville - Huntington Family Centers
Saturday, October 11 vs. Florida State - Mary Nelson Youth Center
Saturday, November 1 vs. North Carolina State - Big Brothers Big Sisters
Saturday, November 8 vs. Duke - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Syracuse
So that's great. But, you might have noticed one game is currently missing.
Tomorrow night's game against the Villanova Wildcats. So far, I haven't been able to find a charity or group to take those tickets & vouchers. I know, I know, you'd think, but, alas. (Maybe McClusky was right...)
So...I need your help. Do you have a contact at a local charity that might be interested? Do you work for a group in the area that would fit the idea of what #CusetixForKids is about? Then I implore you to find out if they would be interested in the tickets & vouchers.
Keep in mind that it's first-come-first-serve and time is of the essence but feel free to email me at seanmkeeley at yahoo or DM me on Twitter if you think you've got a lead. Thanks!
Note - If you're wondering where a certain charity that you told me about is, trust me, I reached out to them. Unfortunately, I didn't hear back from a few. Oh well.
