RHS Boosters Group Hosts Fundraising Portable Dinner
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.
