E-T Staff Report

Fans attending tonight’s football scrimmage between Stephenville and Weatherford at Memorial Stadium will be charged $1 for admission - a dollar that will go toward a good cause.

All proceeds will be donated to the Texas High School Coaches Association “Our Day to Shine” benevolence fund, which provides financial assistance for athletes and coaches with special needs and has made it possible for the THSCA to make a sizable donation to the  Red Cross hurricane relief fund.

The “Our Day to Shine” program has involved 130 schools and to date has raised more than $47,500, with more than $24,000 having been donated to needy athletes and coaches, according to a news release from the THSCA.

For participating the program, both Stephenville ISD and Weatherford ISD will be recognized in the October issue of Texas Coach, according to the news release.
