WHERE?
The Memorial Sports Medicine Tailgate (begins at 5:00 p.m.) at Marysville High School in the field adjacent to the softball complex. Be sure to join us and watch as hundreds of mini footballs fall from a 100 ft. ladder truck provided by the Marysville Fire Department.

*The football that lands in the helmet wins!

WHY?
It’s a great way to KICK OFF the football season and support the United Way of Union County’ 2018-19 Fall Campaign! Our local United Way funds 27 partner agencies and 40+ programs.

HOW?
TEXT 51555 with UWFOOTBALL as the message and reserve your tickets. Or contact Corinne at uwuc.corinne@gmail.com *Tickets also available at our office or at Marysville High School. Contact Ryan Walker at the high school at ryan.walker@mevsd.us for more info.
*All numbers will be randomly generated. Winner will be determined by the presiding judge. If no football lands in the helmet, the $500 winner will be chosen by a random lottery. In the case of multiple footballs landing in the helmet, the prize money will be split.
