Mudsock VIP Event
Fishers, Indiana, August 18, 2015 – This year, the much anticipated September 11th Mudsock football game between district rivals Fishers High School and Hamilton Southeastern High School will offer much more than a Friday Night Light spectacular. The game, expected to draw more than 7,000 spectators, will also tackle two important local causes: hunger and excellence in local education.
PastaBowl will return the week of September 1. This food collection drive, the largest of its kind associated with high school athletics, collected over 8,000lbs of pasta last year and has a new goal of 20,000lbs in 2015. Pasta is a perfect, shelf stable choice to stock seven Hamilton County food pantries, and is especially important to HSE schools where 1 in 7 students face food insecurity. Darrin Wilson, Store Manager of Meijer on 96th Street and major sponsor, comments, “We can’t think of a better way to invest in this community than to join forces with the one event that provides hunger relief and impacts all 21 local schools .”
And there is more! During halftime, the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation (HSSF) also honors all 21 teachers of the year. FHS Quarterback and HSSF Student Board Member, Zach Eaton, states “It’s great to see the two schools in the midst of a rivalry game come together to show our appreciation for the great teachers we have here in our district. Dynamic and committed teachers make all the difference in classroom. HSE is blessed with the best teachers, and they deserve recognition. And, as a senior myself, it is a little nostalgic to see every school on the field at once.”
A limited number of VIP tickets to this rival football game are being sold for $35 and include adult-only, end-zone seating, private concessions and restrooms. Funds generated through these sales support student scholarships and teacher grants essential in maintaining the tradition of academic excellence throughout the Hamilton Southeastern District. Tickets are available while supplies last, exclusively online at www.hsefoundation.org and include a $30 tax deductible contribution to the HSSF.
