Football teams will collect donations for “Our Day to Shine” Aug. 22
EUSTACE–The Eustace Bulldogs and Kerens Bobcats will participate in a fundraiser for the “Our Day to Shine” Thursday, Aug. 22.
Donations will be collected at the gate when the two football squads scrimmage at 6 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium in Eustace. As patrons enter for the scrimmage, they can donate and all proceeds will go to the THSCEF Benevolence Fund.
The THSCEF Benevolence fund was established by the Texas High School Coaches Association Board of Directors to assist athlete and coaches experiencing hardships.
To date, over 900 schools have participated in “Our Day to Shine” and have raised over $614,000. The THSCEF has paid over $584,000 to athletes and coaches in need.
To participate in “Our Day to Shine,” schools must simply designate one of their scrimmages or spring games as “Our Day to Shine” day with gate receipts (less expenses) sent to the THSCEF Benevolence fund.
Both schools participating will be recognized in the October issue of Texas Coach. This program is not limited to football though. All sports teams are encouraged to participate by using one of their scrimmages as their day to shine. Participation gives athletes, coaches and schools a great opportunity for community service as well as an opportunity to give to a worthy cause.
