Murray Football, Hospital Raise Money with Parking
By WestKyStar Staff
MURRAY, KY - The Murray High School Tigers are hoping to repeat their winning season while promoting community service by getting involved in the schools celebration of 140 years of service. This year during the regular home football games, the Quarterback Club has teamed up with Murray Calloway County Hospital to form a partnership that gives back two-fold.
Thanks to the generous support of Jerry Penner, MCCH CEO, the hospital will allow three of their prime parking lots, (located in the Poplar Street lot of hospital), to be used by the Quarterback Club during the home games.
These designated spots will be available at every home game. The first cars to arrive with a three or five dollar donation per spot will receive their pick. The money raised will support the Quarterback Club and a portion will be earmarked for Murray’s new Hospice House construction.
These lots include, 1. The MCCH Cancer Center Parking Lot, 2. The lot neighboring the Ambulance post, 3. And also the North Tower parking lot.
The Murray High Football Team and The Murray Calloway County Hospital’s partnership is a win-win situation for everyone.
Volunteers from the Quarterback Club will be working the parking lots during all Murray Tiger home football games to collect the donations and log hours of service to the community. Murray High hosts Lake County, Tenn., this Friday, Aug. 17 at Ty Holland Stadium. This is the Tigers’ first home game and kick-off is at 7:30 pm.
