BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- A new academic year is underway and the Grand Initiative membership drive is gaining momentum. Last fall, Blazer Boosters launched the Grand Initiative in an effort to nearly double the donor base to 1,000 members.
Through September 30th, Blazer Boosters is promoting Each One, Bring One, encouraging all donors to influence at least one person from their personal network to invest in UAB student-athletes through a Blazer Boosters membership. Memberships start at only $100 and payment plans are available.
All participants in Each One, Bring One will receive a signed photograph of men's basketball head coach Jerod Haasefor every new member successfully referred. In addition to the autographed photo, there will be a drawing for one active donor and one new, referred donor to enjoy lunch with Coach Haase at the conclusion of the initiative.
Blazer Boosters closed 2010 and 2011 with 567 and 729 members, respectively. With the 2012-2013 academic year underway and the men's basketball priority seating deadline of September 1st approaching, help Be the Difference in achieving the Grand Initiative goal. Fans can keep up with the progress of the Grand Initiative by visiting the Flame Tracker.
Be sure to watch the new Blazer Boosters "Be the Difference" Video and see how your contributions support UAB student-athletes.
