New Haven Boosters Seek Help to Plan Fundraisers

A community meeting will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Educational Services Center, located at 34200 Alvarado-Niles Rd.


From the New Haven Unified School District:

The New Haven Boosters Association, which is assisting the New Haven Schools Foundation with a $100,000 pledge to help save co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in the New Haven Unified School District, is inviting the community to a meeting Tuesday night to discuss fund-raising activities.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Educational Services Center, 34200 Alvarado-Niles Rd

Last year, after the District was forced because of state budget cuts to reduce support for after-school activities, the Foundation and the Boosters raised and donated $100,000 to help fund stipends for the coaches and advisers who oversee athletics, marching band, choir, forensics and other programs. The groups have made another $100,000 pledge for 2012-13 – in fact, they are hoping to raise an additional $25,000 – and they are looking for volunteers to join the effort.

More information is available on the Boosters website (www.newhavenboosters.org) and on the Foundation website (www.nhsfoundation.org).

The Foundation, a registered non-profit that supports the Boosters’ efforts, also is selling tickets for a drawing for four box seats to see Justin Bieber in concert Saturday, Oct. 6, at Oracle Arena. Lesser packages are selling for more than $1,000 on E-Bay.

Tickets for the drawing are priced at $20 for one, $40 for three, $60 for five, $80 for seven and $100 for nine. The winner will be announced Friday, Sept. 21, at halftime of the Logan-Berkeley football game (need not be present to win). Tickets for the drawing are available by calling or e-mailing the Foundation (471-3850 or info@nhsfoundation.org).

The address for the schools foundation is incorrect (it shouldn't have a "d" before foundation). Correct address: info@nhsfoundation.org.

Hi Rita, thank you for catching that. We've corrected it in the article.
