UTICA —  Put on your best (or worst) flannel, get ready to win prizes and pre-game with your friends for the Thursday Night NFL Steelers versus Panthers game at the fifth annual Channel Your Flannel.

The event will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at Lukin’s Brick Oven Pizza, 640 Varick St.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a personal hygiene item to be entered into a door prize. Items will be distributed to a local domestic abuse shelter and food pantry.

Prizes will also be awarded for best and worst flannel.

Invite your friends — maybe you can beat them in the stein hoisting or flannel competitions.

The event is hosted by Emerging Leaders United to benefit United Way of the Valley & Greater Utica Area.

This is an age 21 and older event.

The cost is $20 at the door and includes games, chance for prizes, food and your first drink.
