The University of Wisconsin's football spring game will be held on April 20, with a 2 p.m. kickoff, at Camp Randall Stadium.
Tickets will once again be $5 and proceeds this year will benefit the UW School of Pharmacy.
“Three years ago, the athletic department decided we would use proceeds from the spring game and partner with a department on campus to provide them assistance financially,” athletic director Barry Alvarez said on Monday. “It’s been a very positive experience working with the other departments, plus it’s a two-way street. It also helps us promote the spring game.
“This year we're pleased to announce that we’ll partner with the School of Pharmacy. We’re very excited about that and excited to work with them. Jeanette (Roberts, the Dean of the School of Pharmacy) has assured me that they will promote and outdo the previous two departments.”
The proceeds last year went to the UW Center for Nonprofits in the School of Human Ecology, helping to fund student internships.
The proceeds from the 2011 game went to the UW School of Nursing and helped fund Signe Skott Cooper Hall, which is currently under construction.
The UW School of Pharmacy will use the money to fund scholarships for continuing UW students.
