Lakeview Middle School will be the site of a dodgeball tournament between sixth-grade students and staff from Harrison, Jefferson, Leesburg and Lincoln elementary schools. The event is being called Food-a-Thon Family Fun Night and is to benefit the local food bank.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, with the first match at 6:30 p.m. to include Leesburg v. Jefferson. The second match will see Harrison taking on Lincoln. A consolation match among the two unsuccessful teams from the first two games will take place right before the championship game.
Admission to Food-a-Thon Family Fun Night is two cans of food per person and everyone will receive a raffle ticket for changes to win door prizes. Attendees can earn an extra raffle ticket by bringing two additional cans of food.
