BI-LO Commits to Investing in Tiger Pride

Aug. 11, 1999

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson University Athletic Department announced on Friday afternoon that BI-LO has committed to investing in Tiger Pride by offering a new fundraising opportunity to Clemson supporters through BI-LO Booster Fundraising.

Through the program, BI-LO contributes funds to Tiger Pride, the five-year, $30 million campaign of Clemson Athletics. When program participants shop at BI-LO using their BONUSCARDS, a percentage of all participants’ purchases will be contributed to Tiger Pride. In addition, when participants purchase specific products at BI-LO, even more funds go toward Tiger Pride.

Tiger Pride will fund athletic facility upgrades over a five-year period. For the first time in Clemson history, the athletic department has entered into a five-year, $30 million capital campaign designed to bring the University’s athletic facilities into the 21st century. Improvements include renovations to Memorial Stadium, Littlejohn Coliseum and Tiger Field. Additions include an annex to Littlejohn Coliseum and a new indoor track facility.

Clemson supporters may participate in BI-LO Boosters by completing three steps. (Booster #2596)

1. Sign up to participate in the BI-LO Booster program by calling 1-877-4-BOOSTERS toll free or through the Internet at http://www.BI-LO.com. When you enroll, you will be asked for your BONUSCARD number, the first three digits of your last name, and booster #2596 which represents The IPTAY Scholarship Fund/ Tiger Pride. Participants may sign up now to have purchases eligible for BI-LO Booster donations at the beginning of the next quarter.

Note: You may sign up for up to three (3) booster organizations in the BI-LO Booster Fundraising Program.

2. Each time you shop at BI-LO and use your BONUSCARD, the amount spent will be credited to Tiger Pride.

3. BI-LO will donate a percentage of the total purchases accumulated by Clemson supporters and rebates for all specific product purchases.

If you do not have a BONUSCARD, you can sign up for one FREE at the Customer Service Counter of any BI-LO location.
