News Channel 8 has teamed up with community leaders to help pack the stands this Saturday...as HUG plays Las Vegas at Mackey Stadium.
Our Christmas Toy drive is centered around the Angel Tree...a partnership of News Channel 8 and the Salvation Army to collect toys for needy children.
But, this year...we will be giving away tickets to the state championship football game...if you bring a new, unwrapped toy to the station.
Reno City council member Dwight Dortch wants Mackey Stadium...to be sold out this Saturday.
So, he's partnered with News Channel 8...and bought 400 tickets to giveaway during our toy drive.
The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association printed out the tickets today.
They'll be available for people donating toys...as soon as tomorrow.
The N-I-A-A even donated a "new" Nike football for the toy drive.
Directors say it's great to see the interest in high school sports.
Hug is also holding a pep rally this Friday for its students.
Wells Fargo has paid for T-shirts for the student body...to show their Hawk pride at the game.
Here's what they look like.
And, News Channel 8 will be there to present the shirt to all the fans.
