We called it the Inaugural Big Green Draft.
It was really the kickoff to a competive membership drive where all the foundation trustees were drafted onto six competitive teams to bring in new members and raise money in their quest to further fund scholarships for over 350 Thundering Herd student athletes.
Leaders of Big Green chapters were also drafted and are helping out.
If you are a Big Green member or not, call the Big Green office at 866-443-7310, pick a team you want to help and the team captain will call on you.
