“I’m very excited about the fundraiser,” Drill team director Monica Hatchel said. “We were looking for something new and exciting and I think we found it. I feel this fundraiser is one we can do every year and it will hopefully grow into something the community will anticipate.”
The lionettes are hosting a Winter Fest at the Expo center from 6:30 to 10:00.
“This fundraiser is going to be so much fun, not only for the high school but for the community and families as well,” Officer Hannah Phipps said. “This is the first and, hopefully, annual event! All the money we raise goes towards our competition on February 24. So the more people we get involved the merrier.”
The event boasts a “gaming bus” complete with gaming systems, virtual reality and karaoke.
”I’m very excited about the fundraiser I feel like we’re going to have a pretty good turn out,” Co-captain Tramiya Bell said.
The company providing the bus, Gangster’s Paradise, is also providing a bounce house and a mechanical bull. The fundraiser will also have a black light dance party.
“I am very excited because I feel it will be like a mini version of syrup festival,” Officer Kaitlyn Miller said.
In addition to the above sources of entertainment, the lionettes fundraiser will also host various businesses from around town to participate as vendors.
“I am looking forward to Ms. Sharon Florey’s campaign booth,” Phipps said. “I’m so excited that she has decided to run for JP. This is a great opportunity for her to further spread her name in the community.”
Tickets will be $10 per person and $30 for a family of four with a $5 charge for each additional person.
