Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich and Makers Mark COO Rob Samuels will hold a press conference later today announcing a partnership that will bring a new academic center to the University of Louisville.
The Academic Center of Excellence will be built under the South Terrace at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. All of the proceeds from the Charlie Strong commemorative Makers Mark bottle which was released last week will go towards the project.
Coach Strong will sign up to 1,400 of these limited edition bottles on Wednesday, Aug. 1 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mellwood Arts and Event Center. Only 700 tickets will be sold for the signing event. Tickets for the event are just $1 and will go on sale this Thursday July 26th.
You can purchase tickets HERE. Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich will also be on hand for the signing along with Makers Mark executives Rob Samuel, Bill Samuels and Greg Davis.
