Take a Kid to the Game: Experience Storm Football

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (September 24, 2008) - Lake Erie College invites you to attend Storm football this Saturday, Sept. 27, when Lake Erie hosts the Adrian College Bulldogs at 1 p.m. at Painesville Kiwanis Recreation Park. Children will have the opportunity to experience a college football game at no cost as the Storm hosts NCAA Football’s 11th annual “Take A Kid to the Game” (TAKG) program presented by Coca-Cola and sponsored by other Corporate Champions, AT&T and Pontiac. Kids, ages 14 and younger, will receive a free ticket with the purchase of a general admission adult ticket, to watch the Storm at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium. Kids will also have the opportunity to participate in a kicking contest during halftime of the game.

Lake Erie College is one of more than 200 schools across the nation hosting a game in this campaign which is focused on allowing youth the opportunity to attend college football games. The Take A Kid to the Game® program is entering into its 14th year in the promotion of collegiate athletics.
“We encourage you to save the date.  Lake Erie College is excited about this event where kids from the community will have a chance to be a part of our game-day experience and support NCAA Football’s Take A Kid to the Game® program,” said Storm director of athletics Griz Zimmermann. “This game-day experience is an opportunity for children to spend quality time with a parent or role model and learn about sportsmanship that can be demonstrated on the playing field.”
Tickets for this special game will become available two hours prior to the 1 p.m. scheduled kickoff and can be purchased at the ticket booth at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium. The price of an adult general admission ticket is $8.00.
