Game on: Chelsea vs. Dexter event to raise money for both educational foundations

On Friday, Aug. 30 the Chelsea Bulldogs will be invading Dexter to take on the Dreadnaughts in the opening game of the high school football season.

And though these two schools may be rivals on the gridiron, Chelsea Education Foundation and The Educational Foundation of Dexter are joining forces off the field to raise money for teacher grants and student scholarship programs in both communities.

Both foundations will be fundraising in the weeks leading up to the game through a text-to-donate campaign. Community partners, Chelsea State Bank and Lynn Fox Properties, LLC will each match the first $1,000 in donations!

There also will be a push to donate at the game with giveaways to show your school spirit.

  • By Computer: Follow links on or to campaign donation pages.
  • In-Person: Cash and Checks will be accepted at the Aug. 30 Football game.

  • Donations greater than $20 receive pom poms
  • Donations greater than $50 receive a mini-football
