Medical Lake High School Booster Club is sponsoring the evening and will be giving away a hot dog, chips and a soda to the first 200 people through the gates.

MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. — Medical Lake Strong! The community that was devastated by the Gray Fire last month celebrated their first home football game on Thursday. 

The night was dubbed “Medical Lake Strong Night" by the school's booster club, which sponsored the event and treated hundreds of fans to free hotdogs, chips and soda.

"If we can give somebody who is going through a really tough time, give them a couple of ours out here just relaxing underneath the Friday night lights, that's what we want to do," said booster club member Jim "JW" Winters.

Kickoff was scheduled for 6 p.m. on September 14.

Medical Lake High School Athletic/Activities Director, Dawn Eliassen said they hope that the Medical Lake community will join them in a night of hometown football and camaraderie as they continue to heal after the Gray Fire. Eliassen added, “It's an opportunity for folks to come together, enjoy each other's company, and take in some football action. Good weather, hotdogs, and football... does it get any more classic than that?”
