Thank You for supporting the Old Abe Booster Club!
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.
