BATON ROUGE -- In an effort to support the Hurricane Katrina Student Relief Fund, Student Government is continuing the "Gold Game" tradition.
For the LSU versus Tennessee game on Saturday, Student Government will be selling gold shirts with the message "Mission: Possible" printed on them.
Student Government is encouraging LSU Tiger fans to wear the shirts to the game in order to benefit and show support for those students who were affected by Hurricane Katrina.
The LSU Athletic Department has already designated the LSU-Tennessee game as this year's "Gold Game" and is also encouraging fans to wear gold to the event.
Student Body President Michelle Gieg said there are more than 13,000 students who need the help of the Hurricane Katrina Student Relief Fund.
The shirts are available for purchase at several locations in Baton Rouge, including these three on Friday and Saturday of this week:
- The LSU Athletic Gift Center adjacent to Mike the Tiger's habitat
- On Skip Bertman Dr. near the LSU Soccer Complex
- In the grassy area on the South end of Tiger Stadium.
The LSU Bookstore will also sell the shirts for $14.99 and will give the relief fund $2.50 from each sale. Shirts will also be available for purchase at Fall Fest on Friday, Sept. 23.
"Mission: Possible" is a student-led effort to collect $500,000 for the Hurricane Katrina Student Relief Fund, which is administrated through the LSU Foundation. To find out more about the fund, visit www.katrinasrf.com.
