After a successful year of fundraising in 2010, the Texas Tech University Ovations Food Services Concessions department currently is accepting applications from interested non-profit organizations for the upcoming school year.
Last year a total of 28 non-profit organizations worked behind the counter of football, basketball, concerts, and baseball concession stands to raise money. The opportunities not only raised approximately $180,000 for the organizations, but helped to promote positive community involvement.
“Ovations and concessions has been a great benefit to our ministry. It is one of our major sources of revenue,” said Cullen Manny, youth minister for Living Abundantly Ministries in Lubbock. “Working the athletic events does three great things for us: raises money, teaches my youth valuable job and life skills, and gives us a chance to network and let others know about who we are and what we do.”
Interested organizations should contact Ken Armes, concessions manager, or Lori Emerson, concession assistant at (806) 742-7381.
