Kick for the Cure
Oct 7 @ 11:00 am
Soccer players at Liberty-Benton are kicking their fundraising efforts into high gear ahead of this weekend’s third annual Kick for the Cure event.

The junior varsity match will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, and girls from both teams will serve as ball girls and announcers. They’ll also be in charge of a 50/50 raffle benefiting Cancer Patient Services, which will have representatives on hand for a check presentation between games. The varsity match will follow at about 1 p.m. General admission tickets are $6 or $4 for students, available at the gate. Anyone wishing to donate to the cause can mail a check to the high school, made out to Liberty-Benton Athletic Boosters, attention Kick for the Cure. For more information, call the high school at 419-424-5351 and ask for Nate Irwin or Scott Garlock.
