Tickets are now available for the Bob Huggins Fish Fry
The seventh annual Bob Huggins Fish Fry is set to take place Feb. 1, 2019, at the Mylan Park Community Center in Morgantown.
This special evening will feature sports legends, live music, activities, vendors, and more.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Proceeds from ticket sales and auction items will, once again, benefit both the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund at the WVU Cancer Institute
and the Remember the Miners Scholarship Fund.
The fundraiser was created by Coach Huggins in honor of his late mother, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 2003. The endowment supports cancer research.
Remember the Miners raises public awareness to support and honor the legacy of all miners and the mining industry while remembering those miners who have fallen.
