Wells Fargo HBCU Debit Card
The bank’s sponsorship of the event further solidifies its dedication to providing financial resources to the community. It has held various initiatives leading up to this year’s event, fondly called “The Reunion.” The term was given to the 3rd installment of the revived OBC because of the feeling of bringing HBCU families back together under one roof to relive the college experience.
“Wells Fargo is excited to continue our relationship with the OBC,” said Dewey Norwood, Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant at Wells Fargo in a statement. “We’re looking forward to including OBC in our HBCU Legends Collection to allow Wells Fargo customers to express their passion for the OBC and HBCUs overall. We’ll also have leaders in the Miami market available to engage with students, alumni and fans during Labor Day weekend at various OBC events.”
The new debit card is specially crafted to commemorate the HBCU experience at the event. The card design pays homage to the event’s impact on the HBCU community.
“We are thrilled to welcome Wells Fargo back as the Official Bank Sponsor of the Orange Blossom Classic,” said Kendra Bulluck, Executive Director of the Orange Blossom Classic Committee. “Their dedication to financial empowerment aligns perfectly with our mission to uplift and celebrate HBCUs, and the introduction of their unique limited edition LEGENDS debit card adds an exciting and impactful dimension to this partnership.”
Wells Fargo customers who are supporters of the Orange Blossom Classic and HBCUs will have the opportunity to order the card Sept.1 through the end of 2023.
The game will be held on Sept 3rd at the Hard Rock Stadium and will broadcast live on ESPN. It will put the athleticism of Florida A&M University up against Jackson State University.
