‘Football, family and faith’ is the topic at Pigskins and Pearls

Tickets are available at the door for Brookhaven Academy’s third annual Pigskins and Pearls, which starts at 6 p.m. at the school today.

The fundraiser includes a tailgate-themed meal, an interactive class on football basics and a program presented by Carolyn Ridley of Natchez. Ridley’s son, Stevan Ridley, is a running back for the  Pittsburgh Steelers.

“She’ll be addressing the importance of faith, family and football,” said Kappi Rushing, wife of BA head coach Ron Rushing.

Tickets are $20. T-shirts will be available to order for an additional charge during the event. Door prizes will also be given away.

Pigskins and Pearls is open to females of all ages. Rushing expects at least 200 people to attend.

All proceeds from Pigskins and Pearls go to the BA Booster Club.
