July 3, 2013. With football season right around the corner, all of North Carolina’s elite collegiate football coaches are taking some time out to benefit their local communities.
As a member of the recently founded group NC Coaches for Charity, Appalachian State’s Head Football Coach, Scott Satterfield, has designated Hope Pregnancy Center to receive a grant of at least $2,500 from the Fisher DeBerry Foundation. Coach Satterfield will present the award to Hope Pregnancy Center’s Executive Director, Brian Lowe, at the first annual NC Coaches for Charity benefit event to be held on July 23rd at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown. Hope Pregnancy Center will use all of the grant money for their “Yes She Can!” scholarship to help single mothers complete their college education.
Tickets to the NC Coaches for Charity benefit event are available at www.northcarolinacoaches.com. Twenty percent of ticket and sponsorship sales purchased by Appalachian State fans go to Hope Pregnancy Center if you simply note Appalachian State on the event registration form.
