This is our big fundraiser of the year, together as one we will be making a difference for the less fortunate this Christmas. GOD Bless You and GO RAIDERS!!!

CHRISTMAS TAILGATE PARTY

At our tailgate party we will be collecting raffle tickets, toys, food and “NEW” under garments for the Bethlehem Center. For every new unwrapped toy and for every new package of under garments, you will be given 3 raffle tickets for our regular raffle. All food donations are welcomed but you will not receive any raffle tickets. When thinking of a toy to bring please do not forget the teenagers. They are often overlooked compared to the younger kids, sports balls, gift cards are a great gift for them. For our tailgate party, we will be having a Potluck. ATTENTION We are asking everyone to only bring either a main dish or a side dish, our Booster Club will supply the desserts for the Potluck. Our club will provide the plates and utensils, but we do need canned sodas and bottled water, ice chests and ice will be available. When it is time to eat we have decided to go back to randomly drawing table numbers, this will make it fair to everyone who has to work late or is busy making a dish. DJ Abel will be providing the music, we will have Raider vendors, kids corner, kids candy bags, and even an appearance from Raider Santa. LAST CALL: to send photos to our Vice President Dashawn Pryor for his slideshow at our Tailgate party. The slideshow focuses on events that happened in the past year. Please send your pictures asap to our club or you may send them to Dashawn directly at vicepresident@raidersforlife.org

RIP

Our Booster Club sends our thoughts and prayers to Linda Nino, Joe Cortez Sr. and Cruz Huerta. All three of them recently lost their mothers, In GOD We Trust…….
