Alumni football coming back
for second year in April
Gridiron Alumni has announced that it will be coming back to Kentucky again this year for another series of exciting alumni football.  
This year on Friday, April 5, the Harrison County alumni will again take on the Bourbon County Pride team. Game time will be released at a later date along with more information about the two teams.  
The next night, the event travels to Montgomery County where the alumni from Montgomery County and Clark County will do battle.
Last year’s game in Paris that was won by Harrison County garnered much fan support for the charity event. Ticket prices are again $10 for adults, $5 for students with a student pass, with 5 and under admitted free of charge.  
A portion of the proceeds will go to the host schools. Since 2010, over $150,000 has been raised for charities and/or schools through Gridiron Alumni Football. Player spots are still open.  If you or someone you know is interested in playing, go to www.gridironalumni.com to register. If any questions please go to the website or call Chris Hall at 530-410-6396.
