CIAA Sponsor to Grill Samples for Viking Faithful at 2009 Home Finale
October 14, 2009
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - CIAA corporate sponsor Food Lion will be hosting the “Taste of Food Lion” this Saturday October 17 for Elizabeth City State University’s Homecoming matchup with Lincoln University of Pennsylvania.
This marks the third consecutive year that one of the local Food Lions stores (in conjunction with being a CIAA Corporate Partner) has hosted this event at ECSU’s Roebuck Stadium. Food Lion volunteers and staff will be on site to hand out promotional items as well as grill and sample their Butcher’s Brand Beef and other meat items during the game.
It should be a fun time and is designed to get students, alumni, fans and customers who are present and tailgating to come over and check out Food Lion. Food Lion wants to show appreciation to their customers, which include parents, students, professors/teachers of CIAA Schools, fans that shop our stores, alumni and others.
Food Lion, LLC has three local Food Lion, LLC stores within close proximity of the ECSU that employ several ECSU students. One of the three stores is located directly across from the campus. Proud alumnus and great Food Lion associates are eager to support partnership efforts at ECSU.
Food Lion has been an official Corporate Partner of the CIAA for 16 years and contributes $300,000 annually to the CIAA, and a one-third of that goes directly toward scholarships for deserving students at CIAA schools. They are the sole sponsor of the Food Lion-CIAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. All CIAA Schools are located in Food Lion’s market area; therefore, Food Lion customers include parents, students, professors/teachers of CIAA Schools, fans that shop our stores, alumni and others.
