Black Out 2017 – October 6

BLACK OUT 2017 – October 6

You have a chance to be part of an event impacting many lives, particularly children on a journey of Pediatric Cancer.  This Black Out event not only raises money for families battling this disease, it brings Northview together as a community to do our part to help others.

On Friday, October 6, the stands will be filled with supporters wearing special Black Out T-shirts at the varsity football game.  Those T-shirts are on sale ($10-$20) beginning August 1 at school open houses, home football games and all schools (while supplies last).  There are children’s sizes on up through adults.  Get your shirts early as they will sell out.  Special football jerseys can be sponsored with the name of a loved one.  This is a great way to honor someone.  The jerseys are worn by the players during the varsity football game.  We are looking for companies to sponsor and underwrite the cost of the T-shirts.  If you can help with this or are interested in sponsoring a jersey, please e-mail northviewblackout@gmail.com.
