This from Abbie Metz concerning this Friday’s game against Alleman:
“Our alumni group is looking to have a fundraiser this coming Friday, January 25th. This will be taking place at the Rocky vs Alleman basketball game. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise awareness and prevention of suicide. We have two foundations to which we will be donating. Two fundraisers that we are doing for sure are selling tshirts and wristbands that we have designed as well as having a bake sale. We are working on two other fundraisers. One is getting the 50/50 raffle to be donated to our awareness group. An the other is to have a post game fundraiser. I will be taking flyers to the high school to get the word out to get the high schoolers. We look forward to seeing you there in your Red and Gold! Thanks!”
The Rocky Marching Band, a.k.a The World’s Greatest Band, is currently raising funds for new uniforms. This is an excellent way to support your high school and you can contribute whatever amount you like. Here’s the link to the donation site. Go Rocks.
