Booster Club Letter
March 19, 2021
Dear Alumni, Friends and Family of Bosco Catholic School System:
Thank you for your continued support of the Bosco Catholic School System Booster Club!
The Bosco Catholic School System Booster Club provides significant financial support for all extra-curricular activities at Don Bosco High School and Immaculate Conception Middle School. Proceeds from our fundraising efforts support programs’ operating budgets for supplies, entry fees, equipment, uniforms, officials, transportation, and all other expenses associated with both athletic and the fine arts extra-curricular activities. The Booster Club also coordinates the concessions for all events and offers Don Bosco merchandise and apparel throughout the year. The school depends on the $75,000+ that the Booster Club contributes to the budget each year.
COVID-19 fan restrictions have drastically reduced our normal home event profits for gate admission and concession sales this year. Many events do not even provide enough profit to pay the officials required to hold the event. In previous years, our largest fundraiser has been our annual raffle. Unfortunately, due to changes in law interpretation by the State of Iowa and the United States Postal Service, we are no longer allowed to mail out raffle tickets to our supporters. This has required us to make changes to our fundraiser for 2021.
With this letter, we are asking our supporters to donate to the Bosco Systems Booster Club Spring Fundraiser. Donations should be made in increments of $25. Please make your check payable to BCSS Booster Club and mail to Bosco Catholic School System, Attention: BCSS Booster Club Fundraiser, PO Box 106, Gilbertville, IA 50634. For every $25 donation received your name will be entered into a drawing for $500. In order to be entered into the drawing we need to receive your donations by April 16th. The winner will be notified on Monday, April 19th.
Everyone is encouraged to attend our meetings and to get involved in our projects/events. The proceeds from the various fundraisers supported by the Booster Club benefit every student within the Bosco Catholic School System. The Booster Club meets the first Monday of each month at Don Bosco High School at 6 p.m.
Thank you for your continued support of the Bosco Catholic School System.
