ESPN Magazine Fundraiser

In order to continue with our plans to build a great youth football program at A-D-M, we are trying to raise funds to better the experience for players, parents, and fans.  An important step in the process is raising funds to pay for capital improvements at our football facility at Kinnick-Feller park.  This year we added a very nice scoreboard that takes us one step in that direction.  We have plans for many other improvements as well and those plans will be shared with all concerned in the very near future.

In this fundraiser, we are asking that you encourage your player(s) to SELL at least 2 subscriptions.  We are hoping this will not be too much of a burden on anyone.  We understand that many of the boys are not comfortable going out and selling so it should be a good opportunity for them to overcome their fear.  If they are really uncomfortable, we recommend pairing up with a buddy and going together.  Alternatively, this can be done over the phone using the online subscription.  It does not need to be done door to door so we recommend carefully selecting individuals you think may be interested in both the magazine and supporting our youth football program.

As a reminder, this fundraiser is intended to supplement the funds of the club so we hopefully can make improvements to our facilities which would benefit all players and fans of the youth football program.  The board has agreed to better define and communicate these goals and objectives to the parents and players so everyone understands what our organization is trying to achieve.  Look for more details to follow.

We initally asked that players submit the goal of 2 subscription orders by today (Tuesday, Sept. 6th), however we would like to extend this deadline one week to September 13th.  As a reminder, sales can also continue until the end of the season to qualify for prizes.  If you have further questions, please contact Jeanne O'Connor.  Thanks again for all your efforts to support the Tiger Football Club.
