Almost Time For High School Football! Bossier Jamboree Next Week
It's hard to believe, but it's almost time for those Friday Night Lights again!
High School football returns to the area next Friday night, August 26 with the Bossier City Lions Club 69th Annual High School Football Jamboree!
This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Bossier City Lions Club, who do so many incredible things with the funds including:
- Award a college scholarship to a student from each Bossier Parish school
- Send special needs children to the Louisiana Lions Camp in Leesville, La. at no charge
- Fund free eye exams and glasses for school children who can't afford them
There are so many other things they do, but you can see just how many will benefit from this Friday night's games.
Gates will open at 4:30 pm with pre-game festivities slated to start at 5:15 pm. Admission is only $8, Children under 5 are free, with paid adult.
As always, the Bossier Lions Club Jamboree features each of the six Bossier Parish high schools including Haughton, Airline, Benton, Bossier, Plain Dealing and Parkway.
