DURHAM - Duke Athletics will hold the Blair Holliday Ticket Giveaway – including a grand prize of two tickets to the 2013 BCS National Championship in Miami, Fla. – during Saturday's Bull City Gridiron Classic football game against N.C. Central University. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Blair Holliday Foundation.
Fans attending the Bull City Gridiron Classic are eligible to win one of three prizes including the grand prize, a VIP experience for Duke's home football game against North Carolina on October 20 and a football autographed by Blue Devil head coach David Cutcliffe and the team's four captains – Walt Canty, Ross Cockrell, Sean Renfree and Conner Vernon. Winners must be present and aged 18 years or older while prizes are non-transferrable.
Tickets, which will be distributed at the north, east and west customer service gazebos until the end of halftime, for the drawing are free of charge.
Donations for the Blair Holliday fund will be accepted at each gazebo as well. The winners will be selected at the conclusion of the third quarter.
A sophomore wide receiver from Sherman Oaks, Calif., Holliday was critically injured in a watercraft accident on July 4, and is currently in a rehabilitation program at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Ga.
The Duke-N.C. Central game at Wallace Wade Stadium will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at GoDuke.com or by calling the Duke Athletics Ticket Office at 919-681-2583.
