Crosstown fans have one more week to purchase tickets to the opening benefit Jan. 17 of NCTV17’s newest documentary, “We Are Rivals.”
Each fall, the community comes together for two crosstown high school football games. Under the bright lights of North Central College’s Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium, Naperville Central takes on Naperville North in the Crosstown Classic, and Neuqua Valley takes on Waubonsie Valley in the Prairie Classic. This year, NCTV17 went behind the scenes and beyond the highlights to capture each school’s preparations for their big moment in this all-access sports documentary.
We invite you to grab your fellow Huskies, Redhawks, Warriors or Wildcats and join us at 6 p.m. Jan. 17 at Wentz Concert Hall for a fun night out to benefit your local TV station. Tailgate tickets are $50, and include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by Belgio’s Catering. General admission tickets for the show, which starts at 8 p.m., are $15.
Balloon arches by Altitude Balloon Décor will adorn tables showcasing raffle baskets donated by school booster clubs.
After the documentary, auctioneer Bart Darfler will conduct a live auction for items such as tickets to a Chicago Blackhawks game and Chicago Bears memorabilia.
After that, meet in the lobby for school-colored desserts compliments of DeEttas Bakery.
