Default SPARTAN3E SK LCD

I have SPARTAN3E STARTER KIT and I'm uncomfortable with its LCD
off-backlight. I would like to turn on it permanently. Is it safe to
turn on LCD backlight with 5V SPARTAN3E SK-PSU by connecting pin15 (LCD
BL Anode) to pin2 (LCD VDD) and pin16 (LCD BL Cathode) to pin1 (LCD VSS
/ Ground)? Please advise me, thank you.

The Spartan-3E Starter Kit board uses a PowerTip PC1602-D character LCD
screen that does not include a backlight.
