You can root for your favorite college team, while raising money to help people and businesses impacted by the pandemic.
It’s called “Battle of the Fans” and it’s boosting the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region.
The month-long online challenge allows donors to put their collegiate allegianceon the line as they donate to the fund. Fans can donate in the name of the one of 20 regional teams. As of Thursday morning, Purdue had a narrow fundraising lead over Wabash College atop the rankings. Taylor University was third, followed by USI and Notre Dame. USI led in the number of donations.
