ONTARIO – More than two years ago, Kim Lopez wanted to make a difference.

Football, she decided, was the way to do it.

“Football in a small community is the best way to build your community,” said Lopez.

Lopez joined forces with a small group of parents to create the Ontario Friends of Football to raise money for the Tiger program.

One of the group’s biggest fundraisers – the Cardinal & Corn Dinner and Auction – is set for 6 p.m. Saturday at the Ontario Elks Club. Ontario Friends of Football is part of the Ontario High School Boosters Club.
