RHS Boost­ers Group Hosts Fundrais­ing Por­ta­ble Din­ner

Riverbank News - - NEWS -

One of many fundrais­ers over the school year was hosted on Mon­day, Oct. 16 at River­bank High School. The Bru­ins Boost­ers had sold tri-tip din­ners for fam­i­lies of four and had them ready for a drive-through pickup out­side the Culi­nary Arts class­rooms on cam­pus that evening.

The Boost­ers, mostly par­ents of cur­rent or for­mer ath­letes, use the events like this one to raise the money they use to pro­vide schol­ar­ships to stu­dent ath­letes at the end of each year. They also staff the snack bar at vol­ley­ball, foot­ball and bas­ket­ball games, as well as for track meets, and they some­times cart good­ies to sell over to spec­ta­tors at the base­ball and soft­ball fields.

An­other use for the money the Boost­ers earn is help­ing pro­vide uni­forms and other equip­ment for sports teams on cam­pus.

Past pres­i­dent Kimi Jen­nings helped or­ga­nize the re­cent ef­fort, which pro­vided a tri-tip din­ner for four, with potato, corn and rolls. Jen­nings has a son who is an RHS grad­u­ate, and she is an alum­nus as well, with sev­eral young­sters on their way to­ward high school.

Kimi Jen­nings, a past pres­i­dent of the Bruin Boost­ers group, hands out one of more than 100 tri-tip din­ners for four last Mon­day at River­bank High School. The Oct. 16 fundraiser was just one of many ac­tiv­i­ties the or­ga­ni­za­tion holds through the year to earn money it uses to pur­chase uni­forms and other equip­ment reg­u­larly for RHS sports teams. The group also pro­vides schol­ar­ships for Bruin ath­letes in each year’s grad­u­at­ing class.
