Thank You for supporting the Old Abe Booster Club!




Why are we fundraising?

Each year, the OABC initiatives are primarily focused on raising funds to cover the costs of the requested needs for Memorial High School Athletics. Since 2000, the Old Abe Booster Club has raised an average of $70,000 per year to support athletic teams at MHS. Every team depends on this funding to purchase equipment and uniforms that are not covered through the athletic fees collected by the district. Athletic fees paid by families in ECASD go directly to the school district to cover athletics-related expenses such as coaching, officials/referees, and transportation fees.

The OABC works to alleviate the remaining financial pressures faced by the families of our athletes, while putting our teams in a position to compete. On average, over 600 students participate in the MHS Athletics program. In addition to the funding each team receives, the OABC fundraising efforts are also able to cover the expense of the MHS Strength & Conditioning program, which is open to all students and out-of-season athletes enrolled at Memorial.

In the past, student athletes have participated in fundraising efforts by selling Super Saver Coupon Books. With many families and community members facing unexpected financial hardships this school year, and in support of a safe and successful year for our teams, the OABC Executive Board is hoping to eliminate the need for student athletes to participate in this fundraiser during the 2020-2021 school year.
