Powder Puff Game

Tunkhannock Area High School’s Powder Puff Game will be on Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. on the football field in conjunction with the sponsoring of local charities.

The girls will be competing against each other for bragging rights as usual, but together they will be competing to help out those less fortunate in our community. The game will kick off a week of collections.

As the holiday seasons and impending cold weather quickly approaches, TAHS will continue to collect non-perishable food items, as well as gently used winter clothing for admission into this year’s game. A monetary donation will also be accepted for entry into the game.

Baked goods and refreshments donated by the freshman class will be available for purchase.
