Badger Fans Can Donate Remaining Tickets To Schools
Sept. 5, 2007
LAS VEGAS - Visiting Wisconsin fans have an opportunity to help Las Vegas Area schools and the fifth largest school district in the United States, as well as earn a tax credit, when they attend Saturday night's football game between the Badgers and UNLV at Sam Boyd Stadium.
Any Wisconsin fan that purchased a UNLV season-ticket package but will not be using their tickets for the remaining five Rebel home games this fall is invited to donate the tickets to the Clark County School District (CCSD).
The tickets will not be returned to the athletics department but instead go directly to the school district, which would use them for purposes such as the After-School All-Star program for at-risk middle school students, new-teacher orientation and to allow middle school sports teams from local at-risk schools to attend a college football game. CCSD has an enrollment in access of 305,000 students attending over 330 schools with more than 37,000 employees serving the educational needs of youngsters in the greater Las Vegas Valley area.
Each fan wishing to donate their tickets will receive a donation slip for tax purposes. There will be two dedicated ticket windows - labeled CCSD Ticket Return -- at the West, South and East box offices at Sam Boyd Stadium for ticket drop-off before kickoff.
In addition, inside the stadium there will be a CCSD Ticket Return location on the South Concourse behind Section 117.
