BroncoCountry.com is asking for donations to send Bronco fans who cannot go to the Fiesta Bowl due to unforeseen financial circumstances. We want to send a full bus of Boise State students and a bus of local members of the military to Glendale. Shari's restaurants of Treasure Valley has agreed to be a drop-off point for donations through Sunday, December 20th.
The buses have been reserved and spaces on the bus have been donated at cost. The cost of each bus is $14,500 including the bus trip, game ticket and one night's stay (for a total of $29,000).
Shari's has two locations in Boise (on Franklin and one on Chinden), in Meridian on Progress Avenue (just off of Meridian Road) and on Caldwell Boulevard in Nampa. BroncoCountry is asking donors to give their donations to a Shari's manager, who will give them a receipt.
The donations will be picked up Sunday afternoon from all Shari's locations.
Any donations in excess of the amount needed will go towards the Make A Wish Foundation, to buy Fiesta Bowl gear for members of the USS Boise stationed overseas and towards Bronco Stadium Expansion.
