Let’s Get This Party $tarted: While our first meet is still four months away, the time is NOW for getting our fundraising machine fired up. If you are involved in any other Booster Clubs at Mira Costa, you know that all programs must raise more money this year in order to keep them alive. Track & Field will need to raise $20,000 more than last season in order to cover all of our coaching and bus transportation expenses!
We’d like to take as much of that increased financial pressure off of parents as possible by seeking donations from our community via the Stadium Banner Program. We have not previously pursued this avenue of fundraising (although Football does quite well with it), and so we’re hoping it will make a big difference in our bottom line!
Everyone can help – now! We hope that you will join the fundraising effort with a phone call or a visit to your favorite local businesses, telling them why they need to advertise their business on the fence at Waller Stadium! Or perhaps your business or employer would advertise. How easy would that be?
If even half of our track families sold a 3×4 foot banner (pictured) at a price of $500 for the track season, or $1,000 for a full-year display, we could cover our increased costs and have fewer fundraisers and a lower per-athlete donation request. Can we do it? Isn’t it worth a phone call or two to find out? Click this link for a copy of the Banner Program Information and get started smilin’ and dialin’!
Volunteer Update: We’ve got a great incoming Booster Board, and we are looking to fill just a few more leadership positions. Although most duties don’t kick in until season begins, it would be great to fill these spots now (your Booster Board would sleep more soundly over the holidays. Just sayin’). For now, we need Snack Stand Co-chair(s), a Snack Stand Set-up/tear-down Crew (aka, muscled folk) and Photographers.
Please let us know if you are interested by replying to this email (no commitments for asking questions!) and we’ll give you all the details!
