The Frisco Rough Riders will be hosting a Foundation for Lovejoy Schools Night on Friday at 7:05 p.m. at their home stadium. Tickets are $20 and include unlimited hot dogs, brats, chip and peanuts along with unlimited Dr Pepper products.

“It is a Lovejoy ISD night for everyone to get together to go to the ballgame, but it’s also a fundraiser for the foundation,” Foundation for Lovejoy Schools executive director Vicki Deerman said. “For every ticket that is bought three dollars go back to the foundation.”Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 9.38.36 AM

This is the second year for this event.

“The Rough Riders called us last year and asked if we wanted to do it and I said that we would give it a try,” Deerman said. “And it worked well, last year we sold a lot of tickets.”

Deerman said there is a greater benefit rather than just earning money for the Foundation.

“I think any time there is a community event where people can get together with their children and taken them out to do something together it just creates more of a bond between them and their community,” Deerman said.

This fundraiser will help with the grants that are soon to be given out.

“We are going to give back in grants $431,000 to the district here in the next few weeks,” Deerman said. “And this fundraiser will help raise money for more grants to come.”
