Annual fundraiser honors memory of Jordan and Jared Davis

The two young students were killed in a car wreck in 2010.

Another special day is in store for the Wolverines Junior Football and Cheer Organization.

This Saturday, Sept. 28, the nonprofit group will host its annual Davis Day, honoring the memory of two young boys who died tragically in January 2010. At the same time, the day is used to raise money to help kids in need.

The Buckley-based Wolverine program oversees the Davis Fund, which exists to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to participate in either football or cheer. The fund provides scholarships to kids from the community whose families may not have the extra funds.

On Saturday, profits from raffles, concessions and gate admissions will help stock the Davis Fund. The day will include four youth football games, all beginning at 3 p.m. at Arrow Lumber Stadium on the campus of White River High School.

At the center of the special day is coach Tim Davis of the Wolverine team made up of seventh- and eighth-graders. Knows for his saying, “Always be kind,” Davis joined the Wolverine family in 2009 when his son Jordan signed on with the football team. Jordan was a Kibler Elementary fifth-grader at the time and an older brother to third-grader Jared. Both were killed in an automobile accident a year later.

From that horror sprang the Davis Fund and the annual Davis Day. Aside from Saturday’s fundraising event in support of the fund, there will be a ceremony prior to the seventh/eighth game honoring the memory of both Davis boys. That ceremony typically involves the release of 33 balloons, significant because Jordan wore No. 33 on his Wolverine jersey. That contest is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.
