OC Tigers giving back to the community

-A A +A

The OC Tigers youth football organization is partnering with Buffalo Wild Wings this Wednesday, September 4 to raise money for JDRF, the research foundation to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Two players and one coach are personally affected so supporters can acquire a JDRF voucher, eat at Buffalo Wild Wings on Springhurst this Wednesday and 15% of the bill will be donated to JDRF.   There will also be donation buckets at the games Saturday as well as some raffle items.  Last year, the OC Tigers donated over $1000 to JDRF and goal this year is to double that.

Also, on Saturday, October 5, the OC Tigers will host a Pink Out at their homes games at Kentucky Country Day to show support for all those who struggle with breast cancer.  One OC Tiger family is in a five-year battle.  The players will wear pink socks, armbands, etc.  Supporters can purchase a Pink Out t-shirt at www.OCTigers.orgfor $18.50. Deadline to order is September 20.  All proceeds will be donated to the James Graham Brown Cancer Center.

Lastly, the OC Tigers are hoping to help one of the teams in the league, the PCC Bears, by collecting monetary donations to help keep the doors open at the Presbyterian Community Center where many of these athletes seek guidance and support.
