UMass Lowell Hosting ‘Harambe Night,’ Encourages Fans To Wear Gorilla Suits

2,881

If you’re planning on watching the UMass Lowell men’s soccer team play Brown on Wednesday, we have some important news to share with you.

This won’t be your ordinary college soccer game. Not one bit.

Instead, it will be a very special night dedicated to the late Harambe.

Yes, you read that right. If you are one of the first 100 people at the River Hawks’ game, you’ll receive a mini Harambe, and you could win even more prizes if you wear a gorilla suit.

In case you aren’t in on the whole Harambe thing, he has become a popular meme, among other things, since he was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo after a child slipped into his enclosure.

Something tells us this might be the first of many Harambe nights, but UMass Lowell has the honor of going first.
