Fans will be asked to leave their legacy by giving $111 on the 11th to join the 1911 Legacy and make their mark on Buccaneer athletics

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 5, 2017) – On Tuesday, April 11th, the ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will launch a special day of giving in support of Buccaneer student-athletes.

Called “Legacy Day,” the program is asking its own personnel – as well as all ETSU fans – to visit and join the 1911 Legacy group by donating a minimum of $111, which gives everyone a chance to leave their mark on the new ETSU football stadium and the athletic department as a whole. By making this $111 donation, it provides the donor an opportunity to put a 30-character recognition plaque on the 1911 Legacy wall located on the north end of the new stadium.

The goal for the 1911 Legacy group is to reach a total of 1,911 individuals who have made a $111 gift, and Tuesday’s efforts will go a long way toward reaching that objective. In addition to a social media push on Tuesday, April 11th, the program will also be making phone calls to former student-athletes, as well as current fans, donors and alumni to ask for their participation.

Along with making a donation, ETSU would like to ask those that give to challenge others through social media. After making their donation, record a video and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media outlets. An example of the script for your video and the text for your social media challenge could look like this:
