Fundraiser to take place on Meet the Trojans night

By ALLYUS FRITZ/Ledger sports editor | Aug 15, 2013

The annual Meet the Trojans event, which this year will take place on Aug. 23, will certainly have more than just scrimmages this season.

The Trojan Athletic Boosters will be holding the “Play It Again Trojans” fundraiser. The booster club is asking for donations of gently used sporting equipment and Trojan gear. Old cleats and shoes, baseball gloves and tennis rackets are among the expanse of items the club is willing to sell. Anything that might be of value and is related to sports can be donated.

This is part of an effort to raise money for the “Bill Strawhacker Memorial Challenge.” If the booster club is able to raise an additional $25,000 this school year, the Strawhacker estate will match that amount of money.

The boosters have been kicking around ways to raise money ever since the challenge was announced. This was one way they thought the money making could be accomplished.

The attic of the high school was raided in order to find more equipment. Old game jerseys and memorabilia that are currently collecting dust could soon find a home.

Lori Fry and Kris Barker are leading the equipment collecting and both are working at the event.

“If the weather permits we could have it outside,” said Fairfield High School Activities Director Jeff Courtright. “If the weather is questionable, we will probably have it in the high school commons area.”

If you wish to donate equipment, contact a booster or drop the items by Jeff Courtright’s office at the high school.
