The Milford High School Football Team Boosters are raising money to keep equipment safe and updated for the 2011 season. On Sunday, July 31 from 10 am to 2 pm the Milford High School Football Team will be hosting the 2nd annual Open Car Show at Briggs Stadium at the Senior High School.
Last year the open car show featured approximately 68 cars, helping raise over $3,000 for the team. The idea for the car show was developed in 2010 by John Sullivan who is an avid car collector himself. John has two sons who have both played football as Milford Buccaneers.
“Since both of my sons have played for Milford I wanted to do something different to raise money for the football team,” commented Mr. Sullivan. “I have a lot of buddies who are car collecters and thought this would be a fun way to raise money to make sure their equipment is safe and up-to-date.”
The car show is open to the public and individuals can register their cars for $10 by calling John at 302-335-5317. Trophies will be awarded for best in show and first and second runner up which will each be chosen by people’s choice. The Richard McKenzie Memorial Trophy will also be given out by the McKenzie family.
All of the food, door prizes and entertainment have been donated to the event so that 100% of the money made will be donated directly to the Football Boosters.
“Everyone has done a great job at giving us products for raffles and door prizes, said Mr. Sullivan. “These donations will help make sure that our boys’ helmets and shoulder pads are certified for the season.”
