GREENVILLE – Greenville student-athletes in conjunction with the Greenville Athletic Boosters held their annual fundraising event, traditionally known as Back the Wave, on Aug. 12.
The event kicked off with Dick Brown taking a large group photo of Greenville student-athletes. Student-athletes went door to door meeting the community, handing out Green Wave window clings and a Greenville sports schedule. Afterwards, the students reported back to Good Samaritan Stadium at Harmon Field to log their donations. According to Athletic Boosters Treasurer Denise Brandenburg, more than $7,000 in donations were raised this year.
Jim’s Drive-In once again supplied its annual donation of hot dogs and buns to feed the numerous students and volunteers, and the Greenville cheerleaders donated desserts.
The boosters also thanked the parents for helping coordinate the fundraiser and chaperone athletes to their designated area of town. They also thanked the community for its continued support of Greenville athletes.
Anyone who was missed during this community-wide event but would still like to contribute should mail their $3 donation to Greenville Athletic Boosters c/o “Back The Wave” 100 Green Wave Way Greenville Ohio, 45331. Fans are asked to provide a return address so a window decal and schedule can be mailed to their home.
Anyone with questions concerning this event or who want to learn more about joining the Greenville Athletic Boosters should email [email protected].
The next scheduled Athletic Boosters meeting is set for 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the high school.
