(Nov. 4, 2009)--UTSA President Ricardo Romo will give two Spurs tickets to a faculty or staff member who donates to the UTSA 2009 State Employee Charitable Campaign by 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 6. Those who have already made a pledge to SECC or who make a pledge by 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 6 will be entered in the drawing for the two tickets for the Monday, Nov. 9 Spurs game versus Toronto.
The SECC participation deadline was extended to Nov. 6. The participation rate is at 51 percent (and climbing) with a participation goal of 91 percent. Last year, UTSA participation was 78 percent, which ranked UTSA No. 1 in the UT System.

"This is your opportunity to help people across San Antonio and Bexar County with your participation in SECC," said Romo. "I want to thank UTSA faculty and staff members for your past support, which has demonstrated UTSA's heritage of caring and helping others. With our SECC participation goal of 91 percent, we need your help once again. It's not how much you give -- it's that you participate."
