Sports are expensive. Parents know this. They also know some sports are more expensive than others. Football is one of those. Increasing training costs, coupled by shrinking school athletics funding, have made private fundraisers quite common these days.
Mount Si Football had its most successful season last year; a season that was capped off by a trip to the Tacoma Dome for the 3A State Championships in November.
The only Snoqualmie Valley youth football program that feeds the Mount Si High School program is the Wildcat Junior Football Association. As there is no longer middle school football in the Valley, the program becomes even more important.
The Mount Si Football Boosters Club help fund equipment and camps for local high school players, as well the Mont Si High School weight room, benefiting more than just football players.
Together, Wildcat Junior Football and the Mount Si Football Boosters Club are throwing the 1st Annual Wildcat Pigskin Party Fundraiser on September 7, 2013, at Si View Community Center in North Bend.
It’s a dinner, music, auction kind of evening with all of the proceeds helping support youth football in the Valley, consisting of 350 players and 15 teams, as well as the Mount Si Football Boosters Club.
Organizers have been busy all summer procuring items for the auction and lining up a fun evening for attendees. Tickets are currently on sale, but for those wanting the best deal – time is running out. The early bird ticket discount, which makes each ticket $40, disappears Thursday, August 15th. As of August 16th, tickets are $50 – and $60 if purchased at the door on event night.
To learn more about the Wildcat Pigskin Party visit the fundraiser website, where there are links to purchase tickets and learn more about the inaugural event.
To find out more about football in the Snoqualmie Valley, you can check out a great video made by local high school students, Wynter Rhys and Luis Montano. The video highlights of the talents of members of Joe Dockery’s Digital Imaging classes and Video Production Club. Wynter is just 14-years old and heading into 10th grade.
