Football is an expensive sport. Training and outfitting a full roster runs into the thousands of dollars for the bare minimums.
Once again this year, the Pahrump Valley High School football team will hold a spaghetti dinner and bake sale to raise money to help purchase necessary equipment. This year’s event will be at 6 p.m., Aug. 11 in the high school cafeteria.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased from any football player. But the real money is raised through the bake sale, with generous attendees competing in bidding that last year exceeded $1,000. That’s when Tamara Trudeau won the Rolling in Dough trophy for her peanut butter cake, which sold for $1,400 to Rick Marshall.
That amount helped the event raise $10,750, according to organizer Holly Clayton. The money helps purchase items such as blocking sleds and tackling dummies. Last year, leftover food was taken to Pahrump’s Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
