Caring Cats plans annual powder puff game

The Caring Cats Club at Conway High School is using its annual powder puff game to raise money for the 501 LIFE hunger campaign and Special Olympics.

The game will feature a team of senior girls playing against a team of sophomores and juniors at 6:30 p.m. Monday at John McConnell Stadium.

Members of the powder puff court – selected to represent different groups and clubs on campus – are raising money this week and up until halftime of Monday night’s game. The individual who collects the most money will be crowned as king. Members of the court will also be dressed as a food item for Monday’s game to raise awareness about the hunger campaign.

Also at the game, local law enforcement officers and firefighters will have a tug-of-war contest.

Admission to the game is $3, with money collected going to Special Olympics.

501 LIFE and the Community Foundation of Faulkner County have teamed up again to support the foundation’s Stop Hunger Endowment Fund.

This year, local schools, businesses and individuals were encouraged to show “We Can Fight Hunger!” by decorating an empty can for an art contest and using it to collect donations.

Contributions are tax deductible and checks should be made payable to the Stop Hunger Endowment for Faulkner County.

For more information about the campaign, contact 501 LIFE at [email protected] or 501.327.1501.

Everyone throughout the 501 is invited and encouraged to “step up” and help feed the hungry.
