OXFORD – There will be shrieks of delight echoing from Blackhawk Stadium tonight as scores of families take part in what has become an Oxford tradition: Family Sledding Night.
The free family-friendly event, organized by the Oxford Primary School Shared Decision Making Team, will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. tonight at the football field. The actually sledding will take place not on the field itself, of course, but on the hill behind it.
The annual event has proved to be a fun way of bringing the school community closer together, but this year, it will have even deeper meaning for many, for it will also serve as a fundraiser for Angela’s Angels. As such, all proceeds from the sale of food and beverages at the event will be donated to Bassett Healthcare’s The Simon Fund in memory of Angela Hailey-Gregory.
