FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Coach Gary Pinkel Teams Up With Tigers on the Prowl
COLUMBIA, MO, March 13, 2014 — Mizzou Football Coach Gary Pinkel has signed on to host the Tigers on the Prowl 2014 charity event.
As the host, Coach Pinkel will be attending several Tigers on the Prowl events and will serve as media spokesman. Last year’s event raised $47,000 for the charities involved, and with Coach Pinkel’s involvement, Tigers on the Prowl hopes to give back even more to the community this year.
Tigers on the Prowl is an opportunity for mid-Missouri artists to create art out of a life-sized tiger statue. After an application process, 10 artists are selected and given $250 to create their masterpiece. After completion, the tigers take up residency at various spots around Columbia; last year’s tigers were featured at the Boone County Fair, the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival, Hy-Vee grocery stores, University Hospital, and more.
Tigers on the Prowl is sponsored by Cost Cutters and will be raising money for 11 local charities. The tigers will be “unleashed” in June at a kickoff event at The Columbia Mall, and after a few months of display around town, the tigers will be auctioned off at The Crossing in October.
Proceeds from the auction and T-shirt sales will benefit this year’s charities, which can be found at tigersontheprowl.org.
