Let’s “Go, Fright, Win!” for the Aggies and Help Support Area Children

Goodwell, Okla.—Aggie fans of all ages are invited to shed their usual game day gear and come to Carl Wooten Field in their most creative costumes for a fun-filled Halloween football game on Saturday, Oct. 31.

The OPSU football staff will be coaching in costume during the first half as the Aggies take on Texas College at 2 p.m.  A pre-game tailgate with free burgers for the first 200 guests will start the day right so fans are encouraged to show up early. It’s all in good fun, but all for a very good cause as proceeds from the game will benefit the Panhandle Services for Children.

The Panhandle Services for Children is a non-profit, community-based charitable organization that provides area children emergency shelter during times of need. Serving Texas, Beaver and Cimarron counties, PSC relies on the communities for support including donation items ranging from food, to clothing, to families willing to open their homes as safe place for children requiring a safe place to stay. The PSC staff works closely with host homes to provide counseling and coordination of services for children receiving emergency shelter.

All fans will receive free admission into the game, but are encouraged to bring donations of baby necessities such as diapers, wipes, pacifiers and bottles in lieu of gate fees (all items should be new and in original packaging); monetary donations will also be accepted at the gate. In addition, the coaches will be asking fans to vote on their favorite coach in-costume by dropping change or paper money into donation buckets that will be brought around throughout the game.

Also in store for that day is a Halloween costume selfie contest for fans of all ages, with cash prizes for the top three winners; and don’t forget to bring your candy sacks because the Aggie cheerleaders will be throwing candy to the crowd along with beads and mini footballs.

The fun continues during halftime as fans will be treated to a special performance by the Meade All-Star Cheer Squad. Then get your groove on with a spooky musical show from the OPSU Aggie Spirit Band who will be joined by a bevy of musical talent from other bands in the area.

Being an Aggie means not only supporting your team, but supporting your campus and your community. Have fun doing all three next Saturday at the “Go, Fright, Win!” event sponsored by Village Tours and hosted by OPSU Football. It’s always a great day to be an Aggie!
