Huskies Invest Campaign!
Northern Illinois University Athletics invites all friends, supporters and alumni to show their support for the Huskies’ 17 sport programs and more than 400 student-athletes during Huskies Invest: The Campaign, beginning today, October 5, and running through mid-November.

The annual fundraising effort takes on increased importance in 2020 as NIU Athletics is facing its greatest financial challenge yet, with a $3 million shortfall directly related to COVID-19, in addition to a 23% decrease in overall revenue due to limited fan capacity and other factors. The department has already taken significant cost containment actions that have directly impacted NIU student-athletes, coaches and operational staff.

Huskies Invest: The Campaign, is intended to mitigate some of the shortfalls while investing in the NIU student-athletes of today, who continue to work to build on the tradition and success established by their predecessors in Cardinal and Black.

Huskies Invest Campaign!
If all the fans who attend the November weeknight games would please donate $1,000 each, STF would have enough money to buy himself dinner for a week! Just do it. Why make the poor guy suffer from starvation and malnutrition?

Not even joking. But if you donate $50,000 to the HAF, you become a Legend member, which entitles you to dinner with the athletic director.

I wonder if he choose the time, date and venue and if you are responsible for the bill as well?

STF is a real sport. Dinner is at 5:00 pm on a Tuesday or Wednesday at the Junction, and he will pay! Plus, you get your choice of Jello or rice pudding for dessert!!

For that amount, I would hope STF would at least get some tomahawk steaks from Inbodens and grill it himself!

Does he allow the full meal, soup AND salad + dessert? Would be a good deal then.

Lemon rice soup, blue cheese dressing and a scoop of spumoni.....a must for every greasy spoon/Greek restaurant!!!!

That's possible, but it will cost you a $75,000 donation. For $100,000, he will write down your name and commit it to memory so he'll remember it the next time he sees you.

Don't push it. For that kind of meal, you will have to go Dutch treat.

STF contacted me and was totally pissed that I forgot to mention the biggest benefit he is giving to donors of $50K and more: A coupon for a free hot dog at any NIU concessions stand! Because of the rarity of hot dogs, he considers this a top benefit. He did mention that there is a little restriction on the coupon, however. It states that if concessions runs out of hot dogs, the coupon is good for $1 off any other item. That STF really knows how to treat his donors!!

I go to the one in Munster with my parents every so often.It's unreal. The give like a huge meal like pot roast, soup or salad,dessert for 6.95 for seniors.

I was always partial to the Golden Bowl. The original in Dolton, then Lansing.

I am also know to have visited The Commander and my favorite, Petros, for the 4 course meal.

Good ghoulash. Pastitsio is good too, albeit mine in better. 03-wink

I was looking at the donor wall and saw Jake Nordin gave $86, which is pretty cool.
