Sports auction raises more than $53K; fall sports saved
The final number will probably change, but Purple & Gold’s Elisa Howard told me this afternoon that we raised over $53,000 at last night’s BBQ fundraiser & auction. When the final tally is in, it may even exceed that, after expenses are backed out & new donations are backed in.
The evening was a fun get together of over 600 islanders who enjoyed the music of the FHHS Band (they were awesome) as well as the donated food (from Valmark), music all night (dancing the night away), and the perfect space – part of the Beaverton Valley Business Park (donated by David McCauley, photo, with his good friend). The volunteers kept things moving, and it was a great night for us all to hang out with each other, and do a good thing…restore the fall sports that were cut, setting up full restoration of all sports at FHHS, with the passage of the Island Rec levy in November.
