TechSideline.com is pleased to announce that we have signed up to serve as an Ambassador for the Hokie Club’s Drive for 25 Blitz, starting on Wednesday, September 25.
What is the Drive for 25 Blitz?
The Drive for 25 Blitz is a two-and-a-half-day fundraising event scheduled to run from noon on September 25 through 11:59 PM (EDT) on September 27, 2019, inviting all members of Hokie Nation to join the Drive for 25,000 Hokie Club members.
The goal of the Drive for 25 Blitz is to add new members to the Hokie Club, and to encourage existing Hokie Club members to donate as well.
The Blitz is scheduled to start at noon on Wednesday, September 25 and run through 11:59 PM (EDT) on Friday, September 27, 2019 — two and a half days.
During the Drive for 25 Blitz, you’ll be able to donate either to the Hokie Scholarship Fund, or to make a sport-specific donation.
What Should I (a Virginia Tech Fan) Do?
It’s simple: if you’re not a member of the Hokie Club, join! You can join for as little as $25. That’s all it takes to become a member of the Hokie Club and to be counted in the drive to 25,000 members. Give more if you can afford it, but the bottom line is, if you can afford $25, climb on board!
Even if you don’t buy season tickets, don’t come to games, don’t want a parking spot, or live in Egypt, join!
If you’re already a member of the Hokie Club, then take some time out during the Drive for 25 Blitz to give a little more. You can give to a specific sport, or give to the general Hokie Scholarship Fund, which helps pay for scholarships (a huge expense). There are some really exciting matching opportunities (keep reading below) that can raise a lot of money for Virginia Tech Athletics in just one day.
What Does It Mean that TechSideline.com is an “Ambassador”?
It means that we’ll be here to tell you what’s going on, answer questions (as best we can — the real authorities are Hokie Club staffers), and provide you with a link you can use to join the Hokie Club, or, if you’re already a Hokie Club member, give a little more.
What’s the link? Check back during the Drive for 25 Blitz, and we’ll give it to you then. It’s a special link that won’t be ready until then — Wednesday, Sep. 25 at noon.
Also, if you care about this stuff, our link will be specially-coded to identify any donation you make as coming via our TechSideline.com Ambassador link. TSL will get credit for it, so it’s a way to demonstrate to the Hokie Club and the Virginia Tech Athletic Department that TSL’ers are among the biggest, most generous supporters of Virginia Tech Athletics.
