Bulldogs celebrate 'Our Day to Shine' in scrimmage vs Carrizo
By Sandy Jennings BCC Contributor
The Bulldogs will take on the Carrizo Springs Wildcats in a scrimmage this Friday with all proceeds from the gate being donated to the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation Benevolence Fund. This day has become known as "Our Day to Shine."
The THSCEF Benevolence fund was established by the Texas High School Coaches Association Board of Directors to assist athletes and coaches with special needs or hardships. To date "Our Day to Shine" has involved over 800 schools and raised over $288,000 for the THSCEF Benevolence Fund. The Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation has paid over $217,000.00 to athletes and coaches with special needs. Suggested donation at the gate is $5.
"Participating in 'Our Day to Shine' gives our athletes, coaches and schools a great opportunity for community service as well as an opportunity to give to a worthy cause," THSCA Executive Director D.W. Rutledge said. "The THSCEF Benevolence Fund will allow us as an association to help beyond our present permanent injury and memorial benefits policies that currently dictate what we can give to help student athletes with special needs and hardship cases. We encourage all schools to participate in this annual event."
