Preparations Under Way for the Texarkana Live United Bowl
The 4th edition of the Live United Bowl is coming to Texarkana in December and officials are gearing up for the biggest one yet.
Allen Brown, Chairman of the Agent Barry Live United Bowl said the response from Texarkana and the surrounding communities has been overwhelming.
"We have a dedicated group of individuals who are committed to making this is a spectacular and outstanding event for all involved."
This year's game will be on Saturday December 3, with a noon kickoff at Razorback Stadium in Texarkana, Ark. The yet to be selected home team from the Great American Conference will take on an opponent from either the MIAA or Lone Star Conferences.
The community will be invited to participate in other bowl game events, which will include a 5K run, Jeans, Boots, & BBQ Team Banquet and Community Pep Rally.
The EZ Mart halftime show will feature Arkansas native and The Voice finalist Barrett Baber. Another highlight will be the opportunity for ticket holders present at the game to win a $500 cash prize at the end of the 1st quarter, a set of Cooper Tires at the end of the 2nd quarter, a $500 cash prize at the end of the 3rd quarter, and a $1,000 cash prize at the end of the game.
Remember corporate sponsorships are available. As always, the game's benefactor is the United Way of Greater Texarkana. All donations will be tax deductible through the Live United Texarkana Bowl. Business are encouraged to get involved at any level in an effort to create game excitement by promoting the event through their websites, marquees, employee raffles or posting game-day posters.
Tickets are available online or from any Mil-Way Federal Credit Union branch, the Texarkana Chamber of Commerce, and the United Way of Greater Texarkana office, or at the gate on the day of the game. Tickets prices are unchanged from last year and will be $10 for adults and $4 for students.
