PIGEON FORGE – On Friday, September 21, 2012, the Pigeon Forge High School Tigers will be hosting the Grainger County Grizzlies in the third annual Lace-Up for the Cure “Pink Out” football game.
As a result of the overwhelming support from the school and the community, this event has raised $40,000 for the American Cancer Society in the last two years. Teams, cheerleaders, fans and the high school band will be wearing pink in support of the “pink out” game.
Local sponsors, Texas Roadhouse of Pigeon Forge, Pepsi and JBA Vending will be providing a benefit tailgate dinner beginning at 5:00 for a donation of $5.
Event details include a survivor walk, biodegradable balloon release, and a check presentation to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Sevier County during half-time.
“Cancer touches all of our lives in some way. Let us all work together and make this a special night. Come join us as we “think pink” and turn this orange and black stadium into “Pink for a Purpose,” says Briley Shinlever, the youth engagement chair for Sevier County’s Relay For Life.
“As Relay For Life of Sevier County works to engage youth in becoming the leaders of the relays of tomorrow, the pink-out event is a prime example of the power of youth at work in the fight against cancer,” said Billy Worsham, Event Chair of Relay For Life of Sevier County. “I am very proud of our youth and those who support them in their fight to end cancer, Worsham said.
Relay For Life is calling on the youth and the adult supporters of youth to come together to form the Youth Engagement Committee, with meeting schedules to be announced at a later date. If you are interested in becoming a part of the youth engagement committee or any other part of Relay For Life, please contact Billy Worsham at email@example.com
