Profits from Blue Tiger Stadium print sales through Sept. 30 to be donated to Baton Rouge Area Foundation’s First Responders Fund
July 17 turned tragic when a gunman opened fire on Baton Rouge law enforcement officers, killing three and wounding three. Blue lights were turned on around the region in a mass show of support for police officers and sheriff’s deputies. Even LSU responded by switching Tiger Stadium’s lights to blue in honor of those who put their lives on the line every day to protect us.
To help support the families of the fallen officers and those officers who were wounded, all profits through Sept. 30, 2016, from sales of these nighttime aerial images of the blue-illuminated LSU Tiger Stadium will be donated to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation‘s First Responders Fund set up to in 1988 to raise money for law enforcement officers and first responders injured or killed in the line of duty and for their families.
The First Responders Fund is designed to help survivors as they recover from their wounds and to support the families of those who have fallen in the line of duty. The fund is used to cover unexpected expenses including health care, therapy, lost wages and funeral expenses. The fund assists officers and their families who need help now, but also will be available should similar needs arise in the future.
There are five images from which to choose. Two are close-ups of the stadium, while three show the city stretching out around Tiger Stadium. Prices begin at just $32, so prints are available to fit any budget.
Options include fine-art prints, museum-quality canvas gallery wraps, metal prints, acrylic prints, posters, greeting cards, iPhone and Android phone covers, and more. And all profits from sales through Sept. 30 will go to the First Responders Fund.
This fundraiser was made possible though the generosity of Southern Helicopter‘s Benjie Seal, who donated the flight time to capture these beautiful images.
