    • This will be our ONE (1) MANDATORY fundraiser of the season -- meaning ALL participants MUST be involved. There is NO BUYOUT for this fundraiser. 
    • ALL participants are required to pay $50 on Saturday, August 8th.  You will then receive raffles to either sell or keep for yourself.  If you sell all raffles you will not have put out any money as basically you will make your $50 back.
    • Those participants who do not pay on August 8th (football) or August 10th (cheer) will be placed on a list and contacted by us to sell their raffles at designated times/businesses throughout town during the month of August. A coach and/or Board member will stand with them at local establishments to sell their raffles.  Those who do not sell their raffles by September 12th will not be able to play unless the $50 is paid. 
    • If families are having financial difficulties please don’t just avoid us. Come and talk to us and we’ll set up a payment plan or help in any way to set up selling arrangements. 

We look forward to seeing you at the parent meeting tomorrow night and also at practice next week! Looking forward to another great season! If at any time you have questions/concerns, please reach out to us!
