Kid's Day at Boise State!



Kid's Day at Boise State!


     The Blue and Orange Club is teaming with State Farm Insurance to present "Kid's Day" at Boise State this Saturday, October 2nd.  Through the generous support of State Farm, over 500 kids from area youth groups, their parents and/or chaperones will attend the Boise State-SMU game Saturday night, as well as participate in fun afternoon activities at Boise State.  Groups include Family Advocate, the Boys and Girls Club of Meridian, the Boys and Girls Club of Nampa, the YMCA Youth program Hope House and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. 



     The fun begins at 3:30 Saturday with a tailgate party for the kids on campus, complete with hot dogs, chips, ice cream, cookies, and lemonade or milk.  The State Farm mascot, "The Good Neigh-bear" will be there to entertain the kids throughout the afternoon.  Members of the Boise State basketball team that advanced to last year's "Sweet 16" of the NIT will be on hand as well.  They'll be assisting the boys and girls as they shoot a basketball to "win" a State Farm/Boise State seat cushion (everyone will win!), then the kids will be treated to a performance by the defending Western Gymnastics Conference champion Boise State team coached by Sam Sandmire.  There will be "face painting" courtesy of the Boise State golf team.  The Boise State Spirit Squad will lead the kids in cheers and the Keith Stein Blue Thunder Marching Band will also play the Boise State fight song getting everyone fired up for the football game Saturday night.


     After the game, the kids will have an opportunity to walk out on the famous blue turf to meet the Boise State football players and get autographs.  It'll be an action-packed day and the boys and girls will likely be tired at the end of the night, but it's sure to be a day they won't soon forget!
