Football fundraiser rakes in $6,800

Selling manure proved profitable for the GW Graham Grizzlies, who came close to the $7,000 mark in money raised.

The GW Graham Football program kicked of the fundraising season with a successful second annual manure sale, held at the school last weekend.

They raised over $6800 over two days, a whopping 70 per cent more than last year in spite of the not so favorable weather.

“We are really pleased with the overall result, particularly because it was a pretty crummy weekend in terms of weather,” said Anthony Breuker, the booster volunteer and coach responsible for the sale. “Having said that, we couldn’t be prouder of our boys out there shoveling, bagging and selling manure for two days in pouring rain.”

The Grizzlies fundraising efforts will continue through the summer and into the fall with a soon to be announced raffle and a fall kick-off fundraiser dinner.

The Grizzlies are hosting three double header home games (at the junior varsity and varsity levels) this fall at Exhibition Stadium, and Spring Camp starts May 21.

The camp will conclude with exhibition games against Mission at Chilliwack’s Townsend Park.
