Exciting News from Westside’s ABC General Membership Meeting
The ABC General Membership Meeting was held on Wed. April 17th. For those of you who were able to make it with your busy schedules it was greatly appreciated. If you couldn’t make it, you missed some exciting news. ABC has had a banner year this year! Your Westside ABC was able to help the coaches raise over $10,000 that went into their individual sports programs from the Fall Fundraiser Gift Wrap Sale. Then, the ABC was able to raise over $25,000 for the General Fund through your membership, corporate & family sponsorships, and the 2nd Annual Golf Tournament. This brought the General Fund balance to over $37,000. With such a healthy balance, it was time to go to the coaches and request a “Wish List” of items to enhance their programs. ABC is pleased to announce the purchase of the following items for over $25,000:
- Football Goal Posts
- Softball Pitching Machine
- Volleyball Spiking Machine
- Wrestling Storage Container
- Baseball Additional Fencing that will allow Playoff Games to be held at Westside
- Team Bags for the Golf Team
- Boys/Girls Soccer Goals
- Girls/Boys Basketball “The Gun”
This is exactly what the newly reformed Westside ABC is all about — raising and spending money on Westside’s Athletes! Whether it’s through field and facility maintenance, first aid supplies, scholarships, or “Wish List” items, the ABC is here to support the coaches, their athletes, and their programs.
At the meeting, the 2013 – 2014 Slate of Officers was voted on favorably as well. They are:
- Presidents – Rich & Thalia Guderyon
- VP Corporate Sponsorships – Larry Smith
- VP Paw Prints – Kim Truman & Stewart Krosby
- Recording Secretary – Shantra Wilson
The ABC still is seeking board members for Treasurer, VP Fall Fundraiser, and VP Golf Tournament because we want to keep this momentum going! The Board meets once a month, off campus, to plan fundraisers, discuss issues, policies, and funding regarding the sports programs at Westside, and to find ways to creatively engage the community in our sports. If you would like to join the ABC Board please contact us at email@example.com.
Thank you and we look forward to an incredible 2013 – 2014 year!!! GO WOLVES!
