A family fundraising event will be from 1 to 7 p.m. on May 19 at the parking lot at Foothills Park Plaza, Desert Foothills Parkway and Chandler Boulevard. This is a chance for the community to come out and support all levels of Blue and Gold football.

Local Ahwatukee football teams have become very competitive and now have opportunities to play in venues outside Arizona. Proceeds will help raise funds to make sure all Blue and Gold players can participate in these opportunities.

The event will feature games and a bounce house for the kids, and a dunk tank with the chance to dunk coaches and local leaders.

There will be live music featuring former Ahwatukee Football player Ryan Ortega and DJ music.

Prize opportunities will feature a 50/50 raffle, and Faux Poker and Blackjack tables for the adults. Food specials will be offered Loco Patron.

For more information, contact Hector Ortega at wildcathao@hotmail.com.
