HAMMOND – In celebration of Southeastern Louisiana University's Green and Gold Week, the university is encouraging area businesses to showcase their Lion pride by offering specials, discounts or door prizes to Southeastern fans who don Lion gear Sept. 4 – 9.
Green and Gold Week is the celebration of all things Southeastern leading up to the first Lion home football game of the season on Sept. 8 against South Dakota State at 7 p.m.
Erin Moore Cowser, executive director of public and governmental affairs, said that businesses will receive free publicity as a Green and Gold Week partner when they register an offer with firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to register is Aug. 28. It is also a great extra incentive for everyone to wear their best green and gold that week, she said.
"In the past, businesses have graciously offered such things as 10 or 20 percent discounts on everything from DVDs to groceries," Cowser said. "It's a way for local businesses to thank their customers and clients who support Lion Athletics. Wear green and gold and save some green."
Promotions are planned via Facebook, local media, campus and area Chamber communications, Cowser added.
