Clemson Accepting Donated Bowl Tickets and Plans Bus Trip

by -

Clemson, SC-Clemson fans may purchase Mazda Tangerine Bowl tickets
through the Clemson Ticket Office and have them donated to the Dream
Ticket Clearinghouse of Central Florida. Clemson Ticket Manager Van
Hilderbrand made the announcement on Wednesday.

Tickets will be used by Youth Organizations in the Orlando
area. Donors will receive acknowledgement from the Clearinghouse and
the Clemson Athletic Department for their donation. Shannon
Travrides of the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation oversees this

Fans can call 1-800-CLEMSON, (864) 656-2118 or (864)
656-2115 to order tickets.

"Clemson fans contributed almost 1000 tickets to youth groups
in the Boise, ID area last year for the Humanitarian Bowl," said
Hilderbrand. "It was very well received and we have had fans ask
about a similar program this year. We hope Clemson fans who can't
go to the Tangerine Bowl will donate a ticket so a young person can
enjoy the game."

Tangerine Bowl Ticket Purchasers to Receive a Bonus

Van Hilderbrand also announced on Wednesday that fans who
purchase tickets to the Mazda Tangerine Bowl will receive a
complimentary ticket to the Clemson vs. Furman game at Death Valley
on September 6, 2003, or the Clemson vs. Middle Tennessee State game
on September 13, 2003. Fans will receive a coupon for every bowl
ticket they purchase.

Fans will receive a coupon to be exchanged for the
complimentary ticket. The coupon cannot be used toward the purchase
of season tickets or any other ticket package.
