Fundraiser planned Friday night to help school deputy

A family friendly festival and fundraiser are scheduled Friday night at Canyon High School to help the much-beloved school deputy at the campus — and everyone is invited, Canyon parents and school officials say.

Deputy Devin Freeman and his family will be the sole beneficiaries of the fundraiser, which will feature a powder puff football game between Canyon girls, food trucks and carnival games for the entire family, said student government adviser and co-organizer Mike Motherspaw.

A silent auction and other fundraising events are also planned to benefit Freeman, who is being treated for liver cancer, Motherspaw said.

Freeman has been a tremendous role model for Canyon students, the adviser said, demonstrating patience and cheerfulness with “always a smile on his face.”

What one involved Canyon mom called “the Canyon family” has rallied to the cause of helping the family that has helped their students, Motherspaw said. Freeman and his wife have three daughters under the age of 10.

“People are coming up to me and saying, ‘Hey, what can I do? How can we help?’” he said. “It all goes back to the family.”

The festival begins at 6 p.m. on the Canyon campus, 19300 Nadal Street in Canyon Country, with the powder puff football game starting at 8 p.m. Admission is $2.

Food trucks will donate a portion of their proceeds, and all the rest of the money raised goes directly to the Freeman family.

Individuals interested in making donations for the silent auction or for the Freeman family or for making reservations can contact Motherspaw through
