Event to gather sock for needy
Outfitters, Inc. and Ricker’s Oil are sponsoring “Sock Night” at the Feb. 1 PHHS boys basketball game.
Students and adult fans are encouraged to bring new, student sized socks to the game and at halftime will be able to toss the socks towards a Ricker’s Oil logo attached to the gym floor. Socks coming to rest on any part of the logo will be awarded a certificate good for a free “Ricker’s Pop.” The certificates will be distributed by “Pops the Clown,” the Ricker’s Oil mascot.
“Pops” will be at the game greeting fans and signing autographs up until halftime. All tossed socks will be retained by Outfitters and redistributed to students needing assistance. Feb. 1 is Arabian Reader night at the boys basketball game.
