As part of each game, Intense Milk will be selling product to fans in attendance and will donate all the proceeds directly back to the host school. In addition, they'll make each game a little more intense with fun interactive games and prizing. Intense Milk will also be giving away selected promotional items at each game to help promote the event.
According to Ken Voelker, Upstate Niagara's Director of Marketing, "There is an immense talent and a long-standing history of exciting rivalries throughout Western New York's high school football community. We're thrilled to be able to bring Intense Milk to area high schools in order to show how intense our local football games really are."
