Dear Alumni, Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and friends of Burlington High School:
Please join us in this effort to support Burlington's interscholastic athletic programs!
BHS Athletic Association is an athletic fundraising association that’s been in existence for over 25 years. We help provide important stop-gap funding for a variety of needs within virtually all of the BHS athletic programs. Since 2014, the Burlington High School Athletic Association has donated well in excess of $45,000 to many different Burlington High School programs, including, but not limited to the following:
- New uniforms and equipment for High School teams
- $20,000 towards equipment for the weightroom
- $6,500 towards repairs to the softball/baseball diamonds
- $5,600 towards new soccer goals and practice equipment
- $4,000 towards new track & field warm-ups
- $2,000 towards ventilation systems for the team locker rooms & weight room
- Wind screens for the tennis courts
- Fence around Jim Wanasek Field (Bushnell Soccer Field)
- Added speakers to Don Dalton Stadium
- Plus many, many more donations over the years
Every sport program has benefited from air purification systems in the team locker rooms and weight room and the purchase of Hudl, a computer software program that allows coaches and athletes to prepare through film study and film exchange. The Burlington High School Athletic Association is also the major sponsor of the Burlington High School Wall of Fame!
Our primary fundraiser is the Annual BHS Athletic Association Golf Outing. This outing has allowed us to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for use on so many BHS sports needs through the years. As athletic budgets continue to diminish, these fundraising dollars become more and more vital. Our young athletes deserve every dollar. Over the next few years, we will be concentrating large amounts of fundraising dollars toward improving and expanding our weight training and fitness facilities. We need YOUR help! Each year, we look to the parents of BHS athletes to help us with auction item donations, hole sponsors, and foursomes. This year’s annual Golf Outing will be on Thursday, August 3rd at fabulous Grand Geneva Resort and Spa with dinner and auction at Veterans Terrace! There are many ways in which you can assist in helping to make this year’s Outing another success. Please consider golfing as a foursome/fivesome, donating an item(s) for the silent auction, becoming a hole sponsor, or assisting the golf committee with organizing the event. To learn more, please contact Becky (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the BHS Athletic Office.
We will succeed with your help; so contact us TODAY. On behalf of all the coaches and student athletes at BHS, we say THANK YOU!!!
We hope you and your student athlete have a great 2017!
