Reitz vs Mater Dei Rivalry Expands to Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser
Friday night will mark the 77th time the Reitz Panthers and the Mater Dei Wildcats will meet on the gridiron that is the Reitz Bowl. However, it will be the first time the rivalry extends beyond the field to help raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
Youth United, the portion of Habitat for Humanity dedicated to involving high school aged young adults, have issued a "Whose House" challenge to both Reitz and Mater Dei as part of their goal to help raise $80,000 to build a new home. The school with the most money raised will receive the "Whose House" trophy (pictured, below).
Fans, alumni, students, faculty, and anyone from the general public are encouraged to make a donation to help make the build happen.
Each school has a landing page set up where fans can set up their own donation page, then encourage others to do the same through social media, or e-mail. To set up your own page and help the fundraising effort, simply click on the button for your school of preference below.
