WRESTLING FUNDRAISERS

2018-2019 SEASON

The money that we raise throughout the season provides a lot of great opportunities for our wrestlers. Below is a description of each of our fundraisers and how you can get involved. 

TITLE OF FUNDRAISER TIME OF YEAR   DESCRIPTION OF FUNDRAISER
Fall Tennis Bubbles September

Prepare the tennis courts on Cedar Blvd for the start of the fall/winter indoor tennis season. Our wrestlers will install the bubbles that will be cover the tennis courts. 

 

How can you get involved?: 

The tennis bubble fundraisers are the most labor intensive and require a great deal of help. We always appreciate the number of adults that show up to help us complete the task of putting up the tennis bubbles. 

In addition, we have always asked a parent or two to provide a case(s) of water bottles for the kids to keep them hydrated.

Driven to Give October

We have partnered with Benson Lincoln Car Dealership and their President, Mr. Tom LaFrankie in a fundraiser called "Driven to Give." For every person who shows up to the High School (south parking lot) and test drives a brand new Lincoln around the block, Benson Lincoln will make a $20 donation to our program. 

 

How can you get involved?

First and foremost...TELL PEOPLE! Get as many people to the event as possible. The more people we have attend, the more money we will make for the program

Second, we need parents to work the driver registration tables. This is very simple. The driver will register on an IPad their name and address into an online form and hit submit. When they return from their test drive they will do a post drive survey on the IPad and hit submit. Your role is simply to provide the IPad, answer any questions, and thank them for supporting the program. 

Finally, while drivers are there test driving the Lincoln cars we are always looking for additional ways to raise money for the program. Whether it be selling coffee, raffling off various items, or having a bake sale we appreciate any new ideas that you might have to help generate money for our wrestlers. 

 

Program Ads Sale October/November 

Businesses can purchase an ad for their company to be placed in our season program. The sale of advertisements should begin as early as possible so that they can be included in our season program. The season program should be ready for the start of our home wrestling matches.

 

How can you get involved?

Know anyone who owns a business? Let them know that they can purchase an ad in our wrestling program. Program ad forms will be available closer to the start of the school year. 

 

Raffle Ticket Sale December/January

The raffle ticket sale takes place throughout the month of December and the winning numbers have been pulled throughout the month of January. This year the raffle tickets went along with the evening 3 digiti lottery and cash prizes could be won all month long. 

 

How can you get involved?

Please consider purchasing a ticket from your wrestler as well as let friends and family know that they can purchase a ticket to support the Mt. Lebanon Wrestling Program. Additionally, we have always had a parent or more coordinate a day where wrestlers can split up throughout the community and sell their tickets to certain neighborhoods. This would allow for groups of wrestlers to sell to designated areas of the community and ensure that we had reached out to most of Mt. Lebanon. Finally, if you would like to be the point person and chair this committee please let Coach Allemang know that you are interested.  

 

Spring Tennis Bubbles April

Prepare the tennis courts on Cedar Blvd for the start of the spring/summer outdoor season. Our wrestlers will remove the bubbles that were put up in the fall. 

 

How can you get involved?

The tennis bubble fundraisers are the most labor intensive and require a great deal of help. We always appreciate the number of adults that show up to help us complete the task of taking down the tennis bubbles. 

In addition, we have always asked a parent or two to provide a case(s) of water bottles for the kids to keep them hydrated.

 

Summer Youth Camp June/July

The Mt. Lebanon Wrestling Program provides a summer wrestling camp to youth wrestlers grades 2-9. The camp serves as a learning opportunity for area wrestlers to improve their fundamental technique and interact with positive role models in both the coaching staff and varsity wrestlers that will be working with your wrestler.  

 

How can you get involved?

Towards the end of each school year the camp flyer will be provided for the summer camp. Please share the contents of the flyer with the parent(s) of any youth wrestler that you think would be interested in attending the camp.
