Red Army Black T-shirts – Varsity FB tonight’s game is a BLACKOUT!

TONIGHT, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, GO FOR GOLD The time has finally come: It’s Go for Gold Week! Let’s all step up, step in and stop cancer by helping to fund Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s cancer research efforts.

Act quickly – they’ll be gone soon!
Then, make sure to wear that same shirt on Friday (it’s a blackout!) when your Brophy Varsity football team takes on Hamilton High School at 7:00 p.m. at Phoenix College. After the game join us back at Brophy from 9:30-11:00. We’ve got everyone’s favorite senior band The Stickmen performing, a movie on the lawn, raffles and games for PCH, and food.
