Letter: A thank you from Kaneland Sports Boosters

By on September 13, 2013

For the past several months, the Kaneland Sports Boosters have been challenging local businesses and supporters to “Accept the Challenge” and help raise funds for the 2013 Castle Spirit Challenge. I am extremely humbled to write that over 50 companies, businesses and individuals contributed to the Challenge and helped raise nearly $31,000 in funds, goods and services to help support the Kaneland Sports Boosters.

The purpose of the Kaneland Sports Boosters is to provide our athletes and coaches with the “extras” that the school budget cannot fund. Each year, the Boosters provide tens of thousands of dollars of raised funds to enhance our sports programs at Kaneland High School and Kaneland Harter Middle School. During a typical student/athlete’s years in middle school and high school, Sports Boosters will donate over $400,000 to their sports program and teams.

None of these funding needs would be met without the generous support of our Castle Spirit Challenge sponsors. Our 2013 Castle Spirit Challenge Sponsors are: Castle Bank, Brian Bemis Automotive Group, Elburn Herald, Harris Golf Cars, Kane County Chronicle, Delnor Express Care, Rich Harvest Farms, SignFX, J&R Herra, Inc., KPI, Ream’s Elburn Market, Bob Jass Chevrolet, Cadence Health and Wellness Center, Elburn Animal Hospital, Fox Valley Orthopedics, Hair Directors, Hintzsche Companies, Mediacom, MP Logistics, Old Second Bank, Brady & Jensen LLP, Pepsi Americas, Richwrap, Inc., Robinson’s Auto Repair, Sugar Grove Fire Department Association, A&P Grain Systems, Attorney Sally McClellan, Bob’s Septic Plumbing Services LLC, Dan Borowiak Insurance Agency, Elburn Co-op, Engineering Enterprises Inc., Fairel Anne Design, Fox River Foods, Herff Jones, Hill’s Country Store, Hughes Creek Golf Club, Kirhofer’s Sports, Paisano’s Pizza & Grill, Performance Foodservice – Fox River, Sugar Grove Park District, Vital Chiropractic, AHW, Inc., Amazing Grace Antiques, Audrey Ritchey, Avalon Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, Bliss Creek Golf Course, Brucher Machining, C&D Auto Body Repair, Cutz & Style, Emily Kay Salon, Harner’s Bakery, Harry F.

On behalf of the Kaneland Sports Boosters and the Kaneland High School and Middle School athletes and coaches, we would like to say, “Thank You.” We could not have done this without your generous support.
