Powder Puff football! Thursday, Dec. 9, 6:30 p.m.

Proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Like “Yogi” (Berra) once pronounced, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over!” And 2010 football at Cactus Shadows won’t be “over” until the final whistle sounds at Thursday’s Powder Puff “Bowl” pitting 40+ senior and freshman pigskin lady “warriors” against an equal number of junior and sophomore gridiron gals.

In all, approximately 110 CSHS students (including Varsity Football “coaches”) will participate in the always-hilarious (but deadly serious) rivalry, with proceeds benefiting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation (Phoenix office). Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.

The “zebras” are rumored to include Principal Steve Bebee, Jim “Mr. Coach” Marando and Russ Del Grosso. Powder Puff 2009 raised over $2,000 for the beyond-important cause. Breast cancer survivors Mesdames Cyd Buckley, Jill Columbo and Lori Hart will be honoree participants in the pregame coin toss.

Kudos in advance to Student Council Faculty Advisors Cameron Bender and Allison Zilka for “quarterbacking” what is sure to be a spirit-filled evening.
