FAYETTEVILLE, NC – The Fayetteville State athletic department recently kicked off the 2012-13 basketball season by teaming up with several sponsors throughout the Fayetteville area to hold the Coca-Cola/Broncos Connection. The event was held at the Cookout on Ramsey Street.
The department held the event with the help of Cookout, The Big Stick Foxy 99, Coca-Cola and the FSU Bookstore. Each sponsor played a vital role in the planning and implementation of the experience.
Cookout provided a location for the event to be held along with the milkshake special that was offered. The first 50 individuals received a special Bronco Blueberry milkshake, while all shakes were sold for 99 cents. Coca-Cola teamed with The Big Stick Foxy 99 to provide the live radio feed at event.
The FSU Bookstore came through with authentic FSU apparel that was displayed inside Cookout.
“The Bookstore's contributions are a reflection of their unwavering support of Fayetteville State University and its student-athletes,” said FSU Director of Athletics Dr. Edward McLean.
The apparel given to the department gave the establishment a Bronco Pride atmosphere for those who attended.
“Mrs. Wrench and her staff showed their enthusiasm for this initiative from its inception,” said Kevin Wilson, FSU Assistant Athletic Director for Development and Marketing. “We made a simple request for a few pieces of material and they turned it into a unique collage gleaming with Bronco Pride.”
