The University of Wisconsin Department of Athletics annually funds the scholarship and facility needs of its nearly 800 student-athletes in 23 sports. Since the department is a self-supporting entity, the generosity of individuals who contribute to UW Athletics is essential to achieving success in the classroom and on the fields of play.
Please consider how you might Invest in Excellence!
It was announced today that donors who make a 2008 contribution to the Badger Fund by April 30 will be entered into a drawing to win one of the following prizes available only through the UW Department of Athletics:
Two sideline passes to a non-conference home football game
Dinner for two at the Kellner Club prior to a mens hockey home game
Two tickets in a Kohl Center Suite for a mens basketball home game
We certainly recognize that there are a number of meaningful causes in this community that benefit from and, in fact, often really rely on private support each year says Marija Pientka, Associate Athletic Director. And we really appreciate the many individuals who decide to invest their charitable dollar with Wisconsin Athletics. This drawing is a small token of appreciation for that support.
All donors who have already contributed to the 2008 campaign, along with donors who contribute between now and April 30, will be entered to win regardless of the size of their contribution or area in which the gift is directed. Winning donors will be contacted by the end of May.
All patrons who make a contribution at the qualifying level by the respective priority deadlines will have the opportunity to request new or additional season tickets, home and away single game tickets and season parking for the 2008-09 season. Patrons may also be eligible for exclusive events featuring our coaches and student-athletes such as the Legends of Wisconsin Classic, Football Training Camp Outing and Party in the Paint. Check out the 2008 Badger Fund brochure for details.
April 30 is also the deadline for contributions associated with existing preferred seating and parking for football, mens basketball, and mens hockey.
