"This is the first fund- raising event for the new boosters club." The purpose of the club is to raise funds for all athletic events, Harris explained, so students can enter league play. By raising funds, all students are given the oppor- tunity to build their skills, their character, leadership abilities and raise the level of the athletic program.
