GBHS FOOTBALL PARENT MEETING
March 6, 2019
Welcome to the 2019 Granite Bay High School Football Season! THANK YOU for being here tonight and supporting our program.
The Touchdown Club is the booster club for the GBHS football program and is run by parent volunteers. The TDC is a sub-booster account under the GBHS Master Boosters, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to support GBHS Football program operations while keeping parents, players and alumni well informed.
As a football parent, you are a member of the Touchdown Club. Member volunteers are crucial to the success of the GBHS Football program. There are many ways to volunteer with a small portion of time. On game days you can help with team meals, work in the Grizzly Grill, or be part of a set-up or take down crew. Other opportunities include event chairs and committee members, including for our Season Kick-Off Party. At minimum, every family is expected to work 3 volunteer shifts during the season. Volunteer sign-ups will take place on your team’s registration night.
A primary responsibility of the Touchdown Club is fundraising. We work to raise the difference between what the school is able to contribute and what is actually needed, financially, to run a successful, winning football program for your student players. The Touchdown Club’s annual budget is approximately $170,000. The Touchdown Club’s raises funds through the following:
· Parent Donations
· Grizzly Grill
· Grizzly Wear
· Banner & Advertising Sales
· Personal Ads
· Spirit Buttons
· Season Seats
· Season Kick-Off Party – Our main fundraiser takes place on August 17th
100% of fundraising dollars are applied to the Touchdown Club operating budget.
Thank you in advance for your support. We hope that you will continue to support GBHS Athletics however you can. If you have any questions regarding donations, fundraising or volunteering with the Touchdown Club, please contact one of our board members through our website at www.granitebayfootball.com.
We look forward to a successful and memorable 2019 Football Season!!
