RED FEATHER WEEK is a series of events beginning Wednesday, 2012SEP19. This is the 55th year for these Signature Events and we are proud and pleased to announce Drivewise of Chatham as a major sponsor for the young people who are organizing the week of Red Feather activities.
This is the third year Drivewise has stepped forward to support the Red Feather activities and United Way’s Youth Ambassadors. Their generous sponsorship allows the Youth Committee to organize activities and pay related costs while saving on campaign donated dollars. Therefore, the money raised during Red Feather activities can be used to support the 22 programs, services and agencies supported through UWCK’s Community Fund.
Event’s Include Night Football
There are two games scheduled for Red Feather. The first game will be held at CKSS on Friday September 21st and is under the lights beginning at 7p.m. Pre-game activities will include an amazing school spirit demonstration to help kick-off the evening. All schools are encouraged to gather together for this pre-game activity and help show their school spirit. It is a great way to demonstrate your support for United Way Chatham-Kent’s 2012 “Change Starts Here” campaign.
The second game will be Saturday September 22nd at CKSS and begins at 12 noon.
