Seton Hall's Athletic Department has actively engaged its fan base on a more consistent and substantive basis since the dawn of the Kevin Willard era. I dig that...
This morning I spoke with Associate AD Bryan Felt who gave me detailed information of a new initiative for the month of April which I wanted to pass along to all SOJ readers:
April 1, 2012 marks the beginning of Seton Hall Athletics' "30 for 30" program, which rewards 2012-13 Men's Basketball season ticket holders. To be eligible for the program, there is a $250 non-refundable deposit for 2012-13 season tickets must be received in the Seton Hall ticket office prior to April 30th. Weekly winners will be drawn each Friday morning and posted the official Seton Hall Athletics Facebook Page; final prize drawing will be Tuesday, May 1st. In addition to "30 for 30," there will be exclusive bonus deals offered throughout the month of April, so follow SHUPIRATES.com for the latest bonus deals and information.
The "30 for 30" program is open to current and new season ticket holders only. Current season ticket holders should have received the deposit invoice in the mail, and prospective new season ticket holders can contact Richard Bello, Director of Athletic Ticket Sales, to make a deposit or ask any additional questions at (973) 275-2327, or Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org.
