As the cheerleaders held the “Go Cougars” sign, the football team came barreling through. The announcer welcomed the team and the fans cheered. Annette Lafave, president of the Stoney Creek High School football boosters, sat back and took it all in. The football season had begun. As she looked around the stadium, she saw all the support the community had given to her local school team.
“It is amazing how many businesses took part in the sponsor banner program.” Annette shared. Banner after banner hanging on the fence with different sponsors from the local pizzeria to a community dentist helped raise over $12,000 for the football team. The funds allowed the team to purchase a new helmet and shoulder pads for each player.
“The signage makes the stadium look wonderful and our sponsors are so happy with the quality and how vibrant the colors look on the signs.” Lafave commented. When asked if it was a difficult to raise the money Annette said, “No, the program was very easy, all you need is a few people to ask local companies to advertise their business by purchasing a banner. It’s that simple.”
