Volunteer opportunities, sponsorships available for fall event
DeKALB – Planning is underway for DeKalb to host the Illinois High School Association state football championships for the first time in November.
The two-day championship series is expected to draw in at least 30,000 fans and have a $1 million economic impact on the county, said Tom Matya, the chairman of the IHSA host committee and DeKalb School District 428 board president.
To be ready, Matya and others are looking to raise $225,000 and sign up more than 200 volunteers.
