    Very successful program that they are expanding.

    This is something RG should look at for Folsom.

    Basically, fans can make a $10 donation to sponsor tickets.

    The Seats for Service Campaign is a way to show Carolina pride while also providing an opportunity to attend a UNC football game and witness firsthand the passion of what it means to be a Tar Heel. The Seats for Service campaign has expanded to include active service members, including the National Guard and Reserves, veterans, police officers, fire fighters, EMS providers and other first responders as well as children of fallen service members, police, fire and emergency responders.

    For $10, you can sponsor special Tar Heel fans and their family members from local outposts in our state to attend a home game in beautiful Kenan Stadium!

    I know I'd give 10 bucks for this.

    @absinthe or anyone else with a connect to RG et al -- please suggest that they contact the UNC AD to look into this as something that they could implement at CU.

    I asked the ticket office about something like this a few years ago. For those of us who live out of state, I wanted to see if there was a program available to donate tickets for someone (kids, service members, whomever) in the area to go to the games so that we have people in the seats and build up the fanbase. They said something was in the works but I never heard anything more about it. Hopefully they can implement a program like this at CU soon.

    I opted out of the csu game last year and hadn't used my credit before the Stanford game,which was military appreciation day. The week leading up to that game I was contacted by the ticket office about using my credit towards tix for military personnel. I told them I'd be happy to do that. Was a good way for it to not go to waste.

    From that, it sounds like the UNC program is something that CU would be happy to implement.

    No. We filed that trademark for use by Allbuffs with our Club Membership fundraising. We also filed "Dough for Blow".

    After the news that the DOD was actually paying the NFL for their "military appreciation days," the cynic in me always questions things like this.

    Which is unfortunate because I'd like to hope these things really are on the up.

    Yep. Put simply, it's a way we can show our appreciation for those who have chosen a career protecting and serving our nation at home and abroad. I'm more than happy to give 10 bucks so that a member of the military, an EMT, a police officer, a fireman, their families, or the child of someone who lost his/her life giving service can enjoy a CU game.
