BATON ROUGE – LSU had 22 of its student-athletes take part in the first ever Tiger Athletic Foundation (TAF) Thank-a-Thon last week at Tiger Stadium.

The event allowed student-athletes to show gratitude to donors who have supported the construction of world-class athletic facilities and scholarship programs at LSU.

“To have our student-athletes take time out of their busy schedules to thank those individuals and families for funding is priceless,” said Ben Ross, Tiger Athletic Foundation Director of Development. “We look forward to an annual Thank-a-Thon event with the goal of reaching more donors with a personal call from these young men and women.”

“It was very rewarding to have a conversation with the people that support us so much,” said LSU gymnast Ericka Garcia. “We enjoyed talking with others that love LSU as much as we do and look forward to doing this again next year.”
