WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest Athletics is offering a first-ever Valentine's Day treat for Deacon fans - Deacon Gram deliveries from the Deacon himself.

For $150, the Deacon will make a personal delivery of a card, flowers, candy, balloons and two tickets to the February 19 Wake Forest vs. Florida State men's basketball game to a designated recipient in the Triad (within a 35-mile radius of the WFU campus). Plus, Wake Forest will send a photo of the Deacon presenting the gifts to the lucky recipient of the Deacon Gram.

"We have been working for some time to raise money for our Mascot Scholarship program and thought that Valentine's Day deliveries would be another good way of raising funds to support the scholarship," said Mike Odom, Wake Forest Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Promotions. "All proceeds of the Valentine's Day deliveries will go directly to the scholarship program."

"One of the key goals of the Mascot Scholarship is to provide funding for the Deacon to become more engaged in community outreach, such as attending events for disadvantaged children," Odom added. "The Valentine's Day deliveries are in line with our goal of integrating the Deacon more into the Triad community and hopefully also will create some special memories that will last a lifetime for the recipients."

The Valentine's Day deliveries are available to Wake Forest fans or to anyone who wants to give a highly unique and personalized treat to someone special. Those interested should call (336) 758-5011 or email to make arrangements. Deacon deliveries will be made during one of two time periods (either 9 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.) on February 14.

Due to time and delivery constraints, Wake Forest Athletics is offering a limited number of Deacon Grams and will only deliver within a 35-mile radius of Wake Forest University.

All orders must be submitted by Friday, February 11.
