Two Teams, One Cause: Kearney and Platte County Continue Rivalry Game Tradition

Kearney High SchoolNewsComments Off on Two Teams, One Cause: Kearney and Platte County Continue Rivalry Game Tradition

Kearney High School and Platte County High School are teaming up again for the “Highway 92 Showdown” on Friday, October 13 to support a charitable cause. Game start time is 7:00 p.m. and the winner will take home the traveling trophy – a replica Highway 92 sign.

The schools will be selling Highway 92 Showdown T-shirts with any profit from the sales being donated to an organization of the host school’s choice. This year Kearney High School has chosen Feed Northland Kids. This organization formed to address childhood hunger in the Northland of Kansas City. As a partner with Harvesters, The Community Food Network, they raise funds to expand the Harvesters’ BackSnack program in Clay and Platte counties. The organization impacts more than 260 students in Kearney and Platte County alone, and overall help to feed more than 2,250 children in all nine northland school districts.  

Please help support KHS and PCHS as we use our competitive game setting to also support a great cause. You can purchase your Highway 92 Showdown shirt online until midnight on October 4 and at the game for $10. Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students will be in taking donations at the game as well. All proceeds will go to Feed Northland Kids. During halftime, students and staff will present funds raised to Chris Evans, executive director of Feed Northland Kids as well as the organization’s board president, Brian Hall.
