    I know CU single game tix go on sale Aug. 2nd. with the UGA game being packaged with Hawaii & K. St. in a 3 game package. There are a lot of Dawg fans on our message boards who didn't recieve tix thru UGA & are going to purchase the 3 pack for the game...

    Question is.... a lot of UGA fans who purchase the 3 pack will be wanting to donate the unused Hawaii & K. St. tix to a local Boulder charity (we donated over 2500 tix to the Tempe boys & girl's club in '08).....

    Do you have any good suggestions I can take back to the UGA boards as to where to make these donations???

    Thanks in advance & I'm looking forward to visiting your beautiful Campus, City & State.......

    I am sure our former player Jeremy Bloom's charity could find a way to use them. They focus on senior citizens so that may notfit but I bet they would know what to do with a ton of CU tix.

    I'm sure we, here at allbuffs.com, could find a place for a few tickets.

    UGA fans sure seem like classy folk. I didn't make it to Athens, GA a few years back but from what I've heard the Dawg fans were a fun bunch and very gracious hosts. I sure hope CU fans can return the favor.

    By far the best away game experience I have had. I would love to have more SEC games on our schedules in the future based purely on that experience.

    If they want to donate some to allbuffs, they'd go into the drawing for our regular tickets. We'd just draw out for whatever extra tickets we get.

    I'm serious about this, BTW. We won't handle an extra 1,000 tickets, but I'd bet we could find homes for an extra 50 or so.

    Classy, classy move by GA fans. I've just become a fan of the U of Georgia.

    Best way to use the tickets is to donate them to the Ralphie Kid's Roundup. See link below -- ticket donations are tax deductible and the tickets are used by the university for local underprivileged kids.

    Agree that Ralphie's Kid's is the way to go.

    Agreed...except for the last minute of the game I loved my experience in Athens - the UGA fans were awesome!! I hope all the Bulldog fans that go to Boulder have just as awesome experience at the foot of the Flatirons that I did when I went to Athens in '06...

    That would be a great gesture by Georgia fans. It doesn't change the fact that we owe you guys big time for the 2006 game.

    They should be. They were a top 10 team on the ropes against a game 2-10 team, and they saw a live buffalo run all over their hedges.

    Is it just more fun for you to be Debbie Downer?

    To answer the question:
    I second the Ralphie's Kids suggestion.

    Other charities that come to mind are:

    The Children's Hospital Foundation. http://www.thechildrenshospital.org/give/in_kind.aspx
    Give the gift of supporting families who are dealing with a sick child, or the heros who treat them. This web site has many other gift giving suggestions, too.

    A personal favorite is the Aurora Youth League. http://www.theaurorayouthleague.org/index.php
    The AYL is a not for profit pee-wee football and baseball program that introduces kids to the great sport of football. Aurora isn't nearly as well healed as Boulder. But it's close enough and big enough to absorb an allotment.

    Big Brothers and Big Sisters: http://www.biglittlecolorado.org/home.html.
    This is a mentoring program aimed at under privileged kids with a focus on keeping them in school and hopefully college bound. A ticket donation is a great way to get those kids on campus for the first time.

    In closing, here is a gratuitous bleeding heart Colorado snowbunny shot for DBT and our SEC friends.

    PS: Are we absolutely sure this isn't a BYU fan in disguise who who is shaming the Utah fans by being ubercool?
