GREAT FALLS — Crosstown bragging rights won't be the only thing on the line Friday night at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls.
The Great Falls Public Schools Foundation will be announcing the winner of a brand new Toyota Tacoma pickup from City Toyota at halftime of the Rustler-Bison clash.
Over the last 10 years, the Foundation has raised money for continuing education for teachers, student scholarships, and facility enhancements.
Tickets remain available for purchase and so far, sales have been among the highest in the history of the fundraiser.
"We've had some really strong group sales that have been happening by student groups," said Great Falls Public Schools Foundation director Stephanie Schnider. "A lot of them use this as their primary fundraiser each year. So we have some groups that have been selling up to ten-thousand dollars in tickets sales as an individual group from these different highs schools and also from the elementary schools. So right now we're very close to seeing that 130-thousand dollar mark.”
Ticket sales from groups end Wednesday, while sales at most retail outlets will continue through Friday at noon. They will also be available after that at City Motors and the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation office, as well as up until kickoff at the game.
