Griz Game Features 'Black Saturday' Meth-awareness Event

Missoulian.com, Sept. 16, 2011

The University of Montana Grizzlies will host a "Black Saturday" event at their game against the Eastern Washington Eagles on Saturday.

Building on the success of last year's event, Black Saturday will help spread the word about the risks of methamphetamine use to a broad audience of teenagers, parents and young adults. The event is being held as part of the University of Montana's partnership with the Montana Meth Project this football season.

Grizzly fans are asked to wear black to the game to symbolize their support of the statewide meth prevention campaign. Black wristbands and "Not Even Once" temporary tattoos will be distributed for attendees to wear. In addition to activities at the game, the iconic white "M" on the hill above the university will be changed to black on game day to further spread the message.

The University of Montana will broadcast the Montana Meth Project's public education messages during the live radio broadcast of the game.
