Reed City to host Rock the Beat fundraiser at football game

REED CITY — When the Reed City High School football team takes on the Chippewa Hills High School on Sept. 28, the night will be about something much more than athletics.

To honor former high school teacher Angie Pontz, the school will host the second annual Red Out Rock the Beat fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Rock the Red T-shirts will be available for $12 at the event. During half time of the game, individuals will release lanterns, purchased for $15 prior to the event, into the sky in honor of lost loved ones. Banners with pictures of loved ones also can be purchased for $100 prior to the event. The event also will include a raffle with many prizes donated by local businesses. All proceeds will go to the American Heart Association.

Last year, just days after Pontz’ death, community members came together during the Reed City vs. Chip Hills competition to benefit the American Heart Association and to remember the beloved teacher. This year, organizers hope the event tops last year’s success.
