Bids are coming in quickly for a pair of tickets for the Saturday, Oct. 17 game between Ohio State and Penn State at Ohio Stadium.
The Record-Herald is hosting a silent auction for these tickets in support of Fayette County Memorial Hospital’s Partners in Pink program and in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“In a continuing effort to be a partner in the community, we are offering these tickets as a way to raise money for a great cause,” said Record-Herald General Manager Kimberly Lyons-Penwell. “We want to be able to help wherever we can, and not only will this be a fun prize for the highest bidder, all proceeds are going to the Partners in Pink program.”
The game kicks off at 8 p.m. on Oct. 17.
The FCMH Partners in Pink program benefits the people of Fayette County by helping provide affordable mammograms, transportation, and medical care. Mammograms are a very important method in preventing breast cancer. If breast cancer is detected in a mammogram, it is in its early stages and is more treatable. The goal of the program is to help as many people as possible receive a mammogram.
“The FCMH Foundation is so appreciative of the donations to further mammography care for our Partners in Pink program,” said Director of FCMH Foundation and Marketing Chelsie Hornsby. “This program benefits women and men right here in Fayette County.”
Bids will be accepted at the Record-Herald office, located at 757 W. Elm St. in Washington C.H., until this Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 5 p.m. Bids can also be emailed to Editor Ryan Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of OSU Tix. The highest bidder will be notified on Thursday, Oct. 15. No phone call bids or mail-in bids will be accepted.
The bidding for the two tickets with a face value of $250 began at $100 and has increased from there. All bidders must be at least 18 years of age.
