Douglas County law enforcement officers and firefighters will square off on the gridiron later this month to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County.
The friendly flag-football game will be noon Aug. 29 at the Lawrence High School stadium, 1901 La. The public is welcome. The suggested donation to attend is $5, and all proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters.
A team of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers will face a law enforcement team of officers from the Lawrence Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas University Public Safety Office.
It’s expected to be the first game in an annual series. The winner will earn a trophy, but it will be traveling trophy that could be passed back and forth each year.
