FYI: Griz Day at the Carousel is June 16

A Carousel for Missoula is pleased to announce the first ever Griz Day at the Carousel. On Sat., June 16, Grizzly football players will be at the Carousel to meet and talk with fans from 11am to 3pm. Athletes will arrive on a staggered schedule, so there will be new faces throughout the event.

The University of Montana Athletics Department and A Carousel for Missoula are providing a limited number of items to be given away to attendees. A silent auction including a signed football, a signed basketball from the men’s team, and a signed photo from Marc Mariani will benefit A Carousel for Missoula.

“Jacob Haas, one of the Grizzly football players, came up with this idea to help the Carousel,” says Theresa Cox, Executive Director of A Carousel for Missoula. “Lots of his teammates have agreed to be part of the fun and the UM Athletic Department has been very helpful.

“This town is crazy about its Grizzlies, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to meet their favorite football players.”
