Boca Raton, FL -
It is almost here. Spring Fest 2013 CLICK HERE promises to be a great day for FAU fans of all ages.
I’m particularly excited because our office has been afforded the opportunity to do different and fun things. First and foremost, we invited an FAU alum to return to the game where we as fans and as a University will have the opportunity to congratulate him on his 2012 success. FAU’s bookstore has worked with the NFL to secure the rights for an Alfred Morris t-shirt, which I hear is selling well. We teamed with the ticket and marketing departments to promote the 20 Prizes in 20 Days promotion on the website and through the social media outlets. Marketing has hit the streets to get the fliers into the hands of youth which provided an opportunity for several of the FAU teams to meet and work with area youth. I also was afforded the opportunity to work with an FAU student to produce several videos that will be shown throughout the day on the stadium’s video board and later on the website www.fausports.com. In the last few weeks, I have been rewarded with the opportunity to meet FAU student athletes, professors, and members of the community.
The activities will not end with Spring Fest. Softball will host a perennial Sun Belt power and will need your support at their games. They also are host the Marines on Sunday in a fun game that will raise money for Semper Fi which is a fund to help wounded warriors. Last fall, several members of the softball team attended the Marines’ Ball. A memory I’m sure they will never forget.
Sunday is also the night that FAU seniors will be recognized at the annual student-athlete banquet. The outstanding accomplishments of the teams and individuals will be honored and we will bid farewell to those who have represented the Owls they as they move ahead into their next adventure.
We hope to see you at the events this weekend and Go Owls!
