 Saturday, September 6, 2008

 Currier Field, Plymouth State University

PSU's Own Student Band "Toe Drag" to Perform Live!

Catch the excitement of Live Entertainment & Support NH Food Bank 

Come support the Plymouth State University Panther Football team as its picks up where it left off last season by battling in-state rival Saint Anselm College on Saturday, September 6th at 1:00 PM.  The PSU Women's Tennis team will take on the University of Southern Maine at 2:00 PM.

Through the day the PSU "SAAC" {Student-Athlete Advisory Council} will be working with the New Hampshire Electric Co-op's "Food Bank Challenge" to raise  $100,000 for the NH Food Bank.  Every donation made to the NHEC Food Bank Challenge will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000 by the New Hampshire Electric Co-op Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization founded by NH Electric Co-op.  Once that goal is reached, NH Electric Co-op has also committed to match the next $25,000 in contributions.  All of the money raised by the co-op Food Bank Challenge will purchase food to be distributed to pantries and facilities within Co-op service territory.  

The PSU "SAAC" organization is asking everyone to help out if they can and give to those in need.  Donations will be taken through the day at the P.E. Center. It only takes a moment to bring food for the many families in our state who need it.  Remember, every $1 donation equals four meals.

Playing at Currier Field through the afternoon and exclusively at the half with be Plymouth State's own band "Toe Drag"; last year's winner of the PSU "Battle of the Bands".  

Three of PSU's student-athletes will be on stage for the band performing their original songs. A great sound, a great atmosphere, and a great day to be at Currier Field.

It's a great way for everyone to kick-off the fall season for the Panthers and help stock the shelves of the New Hampshire Food Bank. 

As one last incentive......."Take a Kid to the Game" and adults get in at 1/2 Admission!

Come join us for a great event for everyone in the family!
