Conway High School-West’s Caring Cats will host a Wampus Cat Care Fair and Powder Puff football game Saturday, beginning at noon at the John McConnell Stadium.
More than 250 students participate in the group, Caring Cats, which holds fundraisers and provides community service projects to benefit service organizations and individuals in need.
The day’s events consist of a junior vs. senior girls football game, and a performance by male cheerleaders.
There will also be a crowning of a “homecoming king.”
Cheryl Daniels, sponsor, said games will be available for children, as well as face painting and several family activities.
A silent auction will take place with donated items and gift packages from local vendors, restaurants and businesses.
The event’s admission is $2 for students and $3 for adults.
Funds generated from the event will go to the organization’s three primary philanthropic efforts: supplying turkeys for Christmas and Thanksgiving to the Neighborhood Youth Foundation, buying tennis shoes for elementary PE students, and buying supplies for Conway Cradle Care.
“This is the biggest group of student’s we’ve ever had in Caring Cats, and they’ve been working very hard. They’re a great group,” Daniels said.
