Utah State Teaming Up With Operation 1 Hope For Samoa

Oct. 22, 2009

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State Athletics will be teaming up with the 1 Hope United for Samoa organization on Saturday at the USU-Louisiana Tech football game to raise relief funds for rebuilding schools on the tsunami-devasted islands of Samoa.

The organization 1 Hope United for Samoa is a fundraising effort that will encompass many events held in stadiums during college football games this weekend, including USU's Romney Stadium. The goal is to accept a donation of at least $1 from every fan that attends each game. Former Aggie football player David Fiefia will be at the booth on the South Concourse of Romney Stadium on Saturday, collecting donations from Utah State and Louisiana Tech fans.

Utah State has been active in the organization all week, starting on Monday in the nationally-televised volleyball match against Idaho. The Aggie volleyball players wore "one hope" ribbons in their hair to promote the cause and Polynesian dancers performed at the intermission.

On Saturday, the Associated Students of Utah State University (ASUSU) and HURD tailgates will be Polynesian themed to raise awareness and show their support of the cause, and Polynesian dancers will be performing at the booth prior to the game.
