DHS drawdown tickets now available
The Demopolis High School football team is selling tickets for their drawdown fundraiser that will be held on Saturday, March 23 at 6 p.m. in the DHS gymnasium.
The drawdown is an event in which they try to sell 300 tickets for $100 each. During the drawdown, numbers will be drawn, and the first, 100th and 200th numbers drawn will each win $500. The 50th, 150th and 250th will each win $250. The 300th number drawn wins the jackpot of $8,000.
If they sell all 300 tickets, the profits for the team will be around $16,000, which will pay for travel expenses and meals for the team during the season.
“It won’t cover everything,” head coach Tom Causey said, “but it will cover a lot of travel and meals.”
Tickets are available from any football coach or player, and they are also available at the front office of the high school.
