North-South Football Classic Fund Raiser Set

The West Virginia Coaches Association presents the North-South Football Classic each year in Charleston and the date for this year’s game has been set for Saturday night, June 18th at University of Charleston Stadium/Laidley Field.  The 72 players for the teams are selected from high schools around the state and they are in camp at West Virginia State University one week before the game.  In addition to the game, the Coaches Association also awards at least $5,000.00 in scholarships to selected student athletes, as well as the induction of former players into the North-South Hall of Fame.

Now, as you might expect, all of this takes a lot of money and a lot of sponsorships.  The North-South Football Classic game director is once again former high school and college coach Bob Mullett and he has announced some of the Wendys Restaurants in the local Charleston area are getting involved to help with some of those expenses.

This Thursday, March 24th, from 5p to 8p, 20% of all sales at eight local Wendys will be donated to the 2011 North-South Football Classic.  Wendys Marketing Director Jeff Nunez says "it’s just something their partners wanted to do to help out the kids".

The Wendys locations that will be donating 20% of all sales from 5p-8p on Thursday, March 24th are as follows:

  • Wendys – 4007 Maccorkle Avenue, SW, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 121 Virginia Street East, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 3515 Maccorkle Avneue, SE, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 6301 Maccorkle Avenue, SE, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 2805 Mountaineer Blvd. , Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 100 Patrick Street, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 1617 Washington Street, East, Charleston, WV
  • Wendys – 621 Washington Street, West, Charleston, WV

The complete roster for the North and the South teams will be announced in the next few weeks and, as in the past, the 2011 North-South Football Classic will be broadcast live across the state on MetroNews.
