A special message and update from Bill Lansden, Executive Director of the Hokie Club:
With more than $640,000 raised from over 2,200 gifts, we are well on our way to accomplishing something truly significant for our student-athletes and Hokie Athletics. We have until midnight Friday to continue the positive momentum!
We are in the proverbial 4th Quarter. The time of the game when Hokies have risen up to the challenge and pulled out many victories. Today, I am asking you to do the same. If you haven’t already, please reach out to your friends, family and colleagues to urge them to join the Drive for 25. They can donate to the Hokie Club on-line for as low as $25 by going to Drivefor25.com.
Here’s another way you can help: if you are attending tonight’s game against Duke, we will stop by your tailgate to sign-up new Hokie Club members. We have 10 teams of staff and volunteers wearing bright pink shirts walking the parking lots looking for new members. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 540 231-6618 and let us know your parking location.
If you need a little more motivation to take part in the Drive for 25 Day Blitz, please read Bud Foster’s quote. He sums it up quite well.
“I’ve been fortunate to work at Virginia Tech for the past 33 years. I know the vital role our fans have played in all of our successes. With the way they support our team, the way they travel and the way they invest in us to help us build facilities and pay for scholarships, that just doesn’t happen everywhere. Our fans and donors have helped us build this program into what is today. We need more folks to get on board and join the Hokie Club today. We also need our existing Hokie Club members to continue showing their pride in Virginia Tech by investing in the future of Virginia Tech Athletics. This is my last season coaching, and I will forever be appreciative of our fan base. I want to see this program keep growing, and I encourage our fans to help us, just like they always have.” – Bud Foster
