Gator FootballMany local children celebrated the holiday season a little early on Saturday partly because of the generosity of 114 UF Law students. The students donated their law block football tickets for the game against The Citadel to the Gator Ticket Bank, which gives the tickets to local underprivileged children who otherwise would not be able to attend a Gator football game. “I knew from past experience that law students, hectic with finals, wouldn’t likely be attending the game,” law block Chairman Natalie Peters said. “Instead of the students’ tickets going unused, we wanted to kick off the holiday season early and put these tickets to a much better cause.” The project was part of the John Marshall Bar Association’s Community Service initiative under President Chas Short, the executive board, and the general board. “It’s great to see our law school come together to support the community,” Short said. “We’re very pleased with the enthusiastic response to this program.”
