Greetings, Cougar Nation. Hope you all are having a great week.
Well, as many of you know, we have been "involved" for the past few months in trying to generate an on-line giving campaign to help complete phase three of the Martin Stadium renovation project.
And, as most of you also know, I, Sir BH, have basically taken the roll of being the bride who is left waiting aimlessly for the big dog (e.g. The Athletic Foundation) to meet me at the alter.
So, last week, I had had enough of the waiting and put up a post that reflected my frustration.
Then, within an hour of the start of the work day, our best friend and comrade, Justin Felker got back to me. So, I took down the post. A week after that (yesterday), he got back to me again with an update.
So, here it is:
Currently, staff from the Athletic Foundation are working to create a shadow site/portal that will be used by our site and others to solicit and receive the on-line donations that will comprise our little campaign. While no one is talking firm dates at this point, I am hopeful that we will have something up and running by the 4th of July.
So, with that in mind, I hope that you all will stick a five spot (or more) in the ole Piggy Bank today:
Our day of helping to re-build our program and its infrastructure from the bottom up is truly forthcoming.
Have a great week, y'all.
