Saving Mamaroneck School Sports??
A $20 donation could help save eight sports teams that are scheduled to be eliminated from the Mamaroneck School District athletic program next year.
It could also land you two seats at the July 13 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
The Tiger Team Booster Club is holding a raffle and hopes to raise $100,000 to save the freshman football, baseball and boys basketball teams, the second modified field hockey, softball, volleyball and girls basketball teams and a second junior varsity boys soccer team.
The drawing will take place on June 15. In addition to two tickets to the Midsummer Classic, the winner will also receive two round-trip airline tickets on Jet Blue Airways and a two-night hotel accommodation.
"We’re really excited," volunteer Diane Muratore said. "All the sports have come together and embraced the fundraiser."
Athletic director Bari Suman said that although the fundraiser is being run independently of the school district, she would like to see all the teams reinstated.
Raffle entries are due by June 11, and Muratore said cash donations are also welcome. If the fundraiser falls short of its goal, it will be up to the Athletic Department and school administration to decide how to allocate the funds, Muratore said.
"Keep the kids playing," Muratore said. "That’s my goal."
To make a donation or for more information, contact Diane Muratore at firstname.lastname@example.org, Liz Fitzgerald at email@example.com or Judy Santamaria at firstname.lastname@example.org.
