Fans from one well known high school football rivalry are competing against one another for a good cause.

It's all part of the second annual United Way Bowl.

This year's contest will feature Warren and Marietta.

The event which is hosted by the United Way of Washington County, will have fans from both schools accepting donations at Friday's big showdown between the Warriors and Tigers.

The school with the most donations will receive the United Way Bowl trophy.

"It's just important to know that even thought this is a football game, there is another purpose behind this. The money that's raised is going to help our local community and we want everybody to know that they can all participate in that," says United Way of Washington County President, Debbie Roberts.

Last year, Warren won both the game and the united way bowl.

The United Way of Washington County raised around $1900.

Friday's game will be held at Don Drumm Stadium at 7pm.
