TMSG: Spartan Kids Ticket Exchange

Posted:

The excitement on campus for Spartan Football fans is growing just like ticket sales for some of the big games this season.

Two local fans want to make sure the opportunity to see a game goes out to more than just the die-hards. Getting to a game can sometimes be a Hail Mary for many area kids. @

"If we can make a way where tickets that aren't being used could get into the hands of kids who either couldn't afford to go or for some reason just haven't gotten the chance to go to a football game, that would just be a really cool way to give back to the community," said David Harns.

David Harns, the idea man, and Joe White, the website guru, run the Spartan Kids Ticket Exchange program through the online site isportsweb.com where you can donate tickets or nominate a child to go to a game.

"The opportunity Dave has given us to be a part of something different is pretty unique and we're really excited about it," said White.

What's not to be excited about when it comes to Spartan football? For a handful of lucky kids, this year's season is especially exciting because they will be going to their first ever game this season thanks to Harns and White. 

Both remember just how special their first green & white moments were and they hope to pass that experience on to a whole new generation.

"When I was kid, I remember coming to the stadium and it was so big and you saw the grass and it was amazing to see the football players that you watched on TV all the time," said Harns. 

"Call it the feeling, that feeling you get when you walk in the building is second to none and those kid are gonna get that and to be a part of that is pretty cool," said White.
