Jack Backers urging businesses to 'Paint the Town Purple' to support SFA

Jack Backers at Stephen F. Austin State University and throughout the city of Nacogdoches want to “Paint the Town Purple” every Friday for every home game special event. 

As many as 40 volunteers held a blitz to encourage businesses to show their spirit and support for SFA. As many as 50 businesses joined up for the Fly the SFA Flag Program.

Packages of $100 each gave Jack Backers a SFA Spirit Flag for special occasions and an everyday SFA flag.
Anyone else can sign up to Paint the Town Purple too.

Scott Waller, Blitz Coordinator-" Anyone who wants to subscribe to SFA Flag can go to our Facebook page at PurpleNac,” said Scott Waller, the blitz coordinator. “They can go to the Chamber of Commerce website at nacogdoches.org and look under Hot News, and they can download a signup form to have the SFA Spirit Flags."

Businesses are encouraged to offer discounts or specials to any person wearing purple on Fridays. Some proceeds benefit Driving Jacks, an alcohol abuse prevention program.
