2. Dunk a Stoughton High Principal this Friday Night
The Stoughton High senior class (Class of 2013) will be running a dunk tank fundraiser Friday night, September 21, at the Stoughton High football team's home-opener vs. Pembroke.
Senior Class co-advisor Tim Norton will be dunked pregame and in the first quarter; Assistant Principal Hope Fernandes in the second quarter; Assistant Principal Mike O'Neil at halftime and in the third quarter; and new Principal Julie Miller in the fourth quarter.
A single throw is $1; five throws are $3; and 15 throws are $10.
The senior class will also be holding a 50/50 raffle during the game - $2 for one ticket; $5 for three; and $10 for an arm's length worth of tickets.
Regular admission to the game is $6 for adults and $4 for students, but elementary school students will be able to get in for $2 for the home-opener. Those children playing pop warner or flag football who wear their jerseys to the game will be able to get in for just $1 all season.
