“Hotshot Football Challenge” Raises $7,200 For Prevention Focus at The Erie County Fair!

WBBZ-TV, Your Hometown MeTV Station celebrated one of the great hometown events of the summer, the 176th Erie County Fair!

Over 50,000 people visited our “Fred Jackson Hotshot Football Challenge” display across the Firemen’s Building, where families and friends were able to play the best game on the midway!

For a $1 dollar donation to PreventionFocus.org, contestants were able to make three throws of a football through a target on the game.  Even if you did not get a football through the backboard, you still won a prize!

Thanks to YOU, over $7,200 was raised to help our hometown not-for-profit partner!
