End of the Season Follow ups

Posted by Gateway Football Booster Association on Nov 23 2020 at 02:41PM PST

Hello All!

Some outstanding items for the End of the Season and Year End information

Unfortunately, due to COVID and it’s many challenges we have underachieved our fundraising needs for this year. So, we are running low on funds for the usual end of the year activities. With limited group fundraising opportunities, limited 50/50 and no concessions, as well as extremely poor participation in patronizing the multiple additional restaurant and food sponsors that were willing to contribute to our team, we are stuck with the difficult decisions on cutting items that traditionally the boosters would fund. Some of which are helping pay for letterman jackets, senior scholarships, and scholar athlete awards.

We are still planning a banquet for the team, to honor the season, the seniors and acknowledge all of the players for their hard work and perseverance through an uncertain and abnormal season. Regrettably , with limitations in place and wanting to keep the tradition of the it being a family event, we are pushing it out until early to mid-spring. No specific arrangements have been made yet.

We have 4 extra travel suit jackets for sale. The Nike Dri-fit jackets retail for $90+, can be purchased for $70. (sizes: 2-each X, XL)
We also have two of the jackets that were given as banquet gifts last year, one has embordered name that could be removed, and one is plain. Anyone interested in purchasing those, please let me know as well. (Rita 412-913-0267)

We still have quite a few Gold Cards left. We are now selling them at 1/2 price. If anyone would like to purchase them as stocking stuffers, or know anyone that would be interested, it would help tremendously. The coupons are good until end of August 2021, still a TON of time to use!!

Lastly, there are still 12 helmets that have not been returned!!! Two – Three of the brand new! The value around $4000. If your player has a helmet please have them returned ASAP! If your player did not turn their helmet into a coach, or their helmet is not accounted for, the school can invoice you for their helmet. Please contact Coach Holl if you have any information about a missing helmet!

Thank you!
