    The Devils Lake Firebird football team is having their annual Lift-A-Thon Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Devils lake Sports Center. The proceeds from the Lift-A-Thon are used for football equipment for the Firebird football team. 
    The Lift-A-Thon has been going on for the past 12 years in is for grades 9-12. DLHS football players will be split into groups of three. At this point, the bidder will put a value for the group of three will lift per pound by bid.
    If each athlete presses 100 pounds for a total of 300 pounds and you bid 10 cents per pound, $30 is raised. The good part for the bidder is that you get to have the group of three as laborers for two to three hours per athlete for whatever you need them for.
    If you are unable to attend the Lift-A-Thon and you only wish to bid on one DLHS athlete's bench press, you may do that as well. For instance, if you have a friend or relative that does 100 pounds and you bid 10 cents per pound, you would donate $10 to the DLHS football boosters in that athlete's name.
    This would be a straight donation and no labor would be provided. The more weight we lift as a football team then the more we make as a program. It's a win-win situation as a football program and as a bidder.
    If you have any questions, contact Jay Schneider at 665-2684 or 230-4192. Thank you for supporting Firebird football
