BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Before LSU takes on Arkansas on Friday, March 30, students will be tailgating for a cause.
LSU students will be hosting a "Be a Hero" baseball tailgate across from Alex Box Stadium along Nicholson.
The tailgate is a celebration honoring organ donors and the recipients. There will be food and prizes from local business with live entertainment from Disoriented Productions.
Public Relation students from LSU's Manship School of Mass Communication will be partnering with the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency to educate the Baton Rouge community about organ donation and increase the number of registered organ donors.
Tailgate activities will get started at 2:00 p.m.
