Bingo is Boosters’ main source of revenue. It raises approximately $10,000 a month that goes to both our Boosters’ general fund and to individual sports. Bingo is played every Monday night of the year in the Portuguese Hall which is located in Santa Cruz between Costco and Harvey West Park. Bingo raises money for sports in two ways. The first is through a dedicated core team of parents that volunteer one Monday each month to run bingo. They generate money for the Boosters general fund. The second way is by giving money directly to a sport. Every sport gets assigned bingo night(s). Four parents from that sport are asked to work bingo for one night. The Boosters then deposits $500.00 into that sport’s ASB account for each bingo night worked. SUPPORT YOUR COACH BY VOLUNTEERING WHEN ASKED TO WORK BINGO. THIS IS HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR TEAM PLAYER(S)!
***WANTED*** Our Bingo core team needs parents! (commitment: one Monday evening a month). Also needed, one to three people to take over the operation of Bingo. Currently most of our core team and operational manager are parents whose children have graduated. Remember, Bingo raises the most money for SLVHS sports.
*Football Snack Bar/Concessions
The Boosters run the snack bar at the football field. Booster members and volunteer parents staff the snack bar. Concession money goes directly to the sport’s ASB account. Please help out by taking your turn at the snack bar and concession stands.
Donations from parents, alumni and business are another source of revenue. SLV Boosters is an official nonprofit tax exempt organization for State and Federal purposes. If you would like to make a donation to SLV Boosters for high school sports send a check to SLV Athletic Boosters, P.O. Box 616, Felton, CA 95018. A receipt will be sent for your tax records.
