On Friday, September 1, 2017, East Cobb Middle School PTSA and Foundation, Wheeler High School PTSA and Wheeler Football Booster Club are collaborating to present the 2nd Annual Wildcat Nation Community Food Truck Night!
This year’s diverse offering of food trucks - The Blaxican, Bollywood Zing, The Mad Greek, Righteous ‘Que BBQ, Mac the Cheese, Waffle House, Saporito’s Pizzeria, Cherry on Top Delights, and King of Pops - are sure to please everyone in the family.
Our first Food Truck Night was a huge success, with #WildcatNation represented by students and their families from all Wheeler feeder schools, and attendees from all over the East Cobb! #WildcatNation invites the community to kick off the Labor Day holiday weekend in Wheeler’s parking lot at 5:30PM, prior to the Wildcat’s game against the South Cobb Eagles. It’s Jr. Wildat Night for the Wildcat Football Program and Food Truck Night will benefit the four local school organizations. The Food Trucks will be set up at 5:30 so you can get some great food and then stay for the game at 7:30!
“The ECMS PTSA and Foundation are excited to co-host this fundraising event that involves the whole Wheeler community”, says Sandy Welfare, co-president of the ECMS PTSA. “We look forward to seeing people from all over East Cobb come out for a fun evening.”
“We are hoping this tailgate will encourage Wheeler football fans to gather earlier and create an atmosphere full of Wheeler pride", says Kelly Feddersen, President of the Wheeler Football Booster Club.
