Buckingham football community event set for Saturday

The community will have an opportunity to come out and meet the 2017 Buckingham County High School (BCHS) varsity and junior varsity football players and coaches during the “A Night with the Knights” event Saturday from 5-7 p.m. at BCHS.

The goal of the gathering is to invigorate community pride, helping to fill the stadium at BCHS this season in support of Buckingham’s “Boys of Fall.” All money collected from the event will be used to hire an athletic trainer and will help pay for pre-game meals.

The event will feature raffle prizes, free games for all ages, a free bounce house, snow cones, food, Knights Spirit items, crafts and more. There will also be a photo booth.

Those attending will have the chance to win a tailgating pack that includes a Yeti cooler and season passes to Buckingham sports.

The event is sponsored by the Buckingham County High School Football Booster Club and Black Swan Catering and Events.
