It was standing room only Friday at Eaglesticks in South Zanesville as Buckeye fans came out to support their team and a local charity.
Big Brothers Big Sisters held a Buckeye Pep Rally to raise money for the organization. Last year's dinner and auction raised $20,000.
"They go toward all of the programming for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, which includes matching mentors out in the community as well as school based programs," says Tracy Rector, Pep Rally co-chair.
It is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Rector says each year they even get a few Michigan fans that brave the crowd... but not many.
