AREA HIGH SCHOOL HEAD FOOTBALL COACHES LOOKING TO SCORE BIG TO HELP
JOHNSON CITY RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE WITH JULY 4 FUNDRAISER
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Friday, May 26, 2013) – The Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House in Johnson City is hitting the gridiron to raise funds for its annual July 4 fundraiser.
The Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing for families of seriously ill children throughout 40 counties in Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and Eastern Kentucky, has assembled an all-star team of area high school head football coaches to help the organization score big this year.
Each of the ten coaches will be tasked with raising a goal of $500 through an online campaign.
“We’ve been very fortunate in the past that our annual fundraiser has been very successful,” said Chief Executive Officer Dewayne Dickens. “This year, we came up with the idea of asking high school head football coaches if they would participate and they happily agreed to help us out. We all know that people in this area love football, so we’re hoping the folks in this area will get behind the coaches and get to the fundraising goal.”
Coaches who are currently taking part in the July 4 Fundraiser are:
- O’Brien Bennett – Unaka
- Stacy Carter – Science Hill
- Hayden Chandley – David Crockett
- Joey Christian – Dobyns-Bennett
- Josh Hensley – Cherokee
- Justin Hilton – West Ridge
- Jesse McMillan – Volunteer
- Eddie Spradlen – Greeneville
- Shawn Witten – Elizabethton
- C. Simmons – Sullivan East
Those interested in making donations can do so at www.rmhsa.org/teamrmhc June 5. The fundraiser will continue through July 5.
