JULY 2014 EDITION

 

Over the last 10 years the SDSU Alumni Tailgate Tent, otherwise known as the Alumni Rabbit Den, has become a SDSU football tradition, but not without the generous support of our amazing sponsors. Our goal is to keep this tradition a part of the SDSU football experience. Presently, the Alumni Rabbit Den is a free will donation event for all alumni and fans, and we would like to keep it that way. That’s why we are asking you to support the yellow and blue and its ever-growing family of SDSU alumni. Go Jackrabbits!

The Hobo Day Committee is creating a Hobo Day Legacy Fund to feed Hoboic traditions and foster spirit and energy around South Dakota State University’s century-old homecoming celebration.
The Hobo Day Legacy Fund will support three major initiatives:

The Bummobile: Keeping the 1912 Ford Model-T rolling takes expertise and funding, including maintenance and insurance.

Fantastic Floats Fund:
 Since 2012, financial incentives have been offered to student organizations to cover some costs for Hobo Day floats and provide float-building workshops.

Summer Parade Tour:
 Each summer, the Hobo Day Committee loads up the Bummobile and visits communities throughout South Dakota to promote Hobo Day and spread Jackrabbit pride.

The Hobo Day Committee will need $25,000 from the Legacy Fund annually to support these initiatives.
