"Celebrate Cotton" Game Scheduled for September 21
Plains Cotton Growers has again teamed up with Texas Tech Athletics and 8 corporate partners supporting the cotton industry to bring you the "Celebrate Cotton" Game as the Red Raiders host Texas State on Saturday, September 21, at Jones AT&T Stadium. Game time currently is scheduled for 6 p.m.
THIS GAME IS SOLD OUT! However, there will be plenty to do before the game, so we still encourage everyone to come and be part of the festivities!
Cotton will be everywhere before and throughout the game, from displays at Raider Alley and around the stadium to promotion, special graphics and fun cotton facts during the game. Special gameday T-shirts will be distributed (first-come, first-serve!) and cotton bales will line each entrance to the stadium, each with signage talking about what the cotton in that bale can make or how it impacts our economy.
Presenting sponsors for Celebrate Cotton include United Cotton Growers; FiberMax; Warren CAT; AgTexas Farm Credit Services; PhytoGen; City Bank; Deltapine; and All-Tex Seed.
The day before, September 20, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce will host their annual Harvest Luncheon, presented by Bayer CropScience, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Plains Cotton Cooperative Association in the delegate body room. Keynote speaker will be Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples. This luncheon also is sold out.
For more information, please call PCG at (806) 792-4904.
Spread the word! Let's make this game a huge success for cotton!
