UW-Madison CALS Football Fire-Up Set Sept. 6

Event will benefit Rural Youth Scholarship Fund.

This year's annual Football Fire-Up is not just a chance to connect with old friends, fill up on a smorgasbord of tailgate fare and stoke up spirit to help cheer on the Badgers. It's also an opportunity to invest in the future of Wisconsin's rural youth.

Sponsored by the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the Sept. 6 event will benefit the new Wisconsin Rural Youth Scholarship Fund, which will provide financial assistance to undergraduate students from the state's rural high schools. Gifts to the Wisconsin Rural Youth Scholarship Fund will be matched by the CALS Office of the Dean, which created the fund along with the UW Foundation.

The Fire-Up will be held on Saturday, Sept. 6 at the UW Field House, 1440 Monroe St. from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Kickoff is at 11 a.m. Register at
