Pop Warner football offers player sign-ups and raffle
May 30, 2008
The South Tahoe Pop Warner Football Association is gearing up for the upcoming season that will begin Aug. 4. All boys and girls ages 5 to 15 and parents wishing to participate can sign up at the South Tahoe Middle School open house from 5 to 6:15 p.m. Thursday.
Applications also are available online at http://www.southtahoepopwarner.com. Register online early to receive a discount. This is a nationwide football program that is safe, fun and promotes team spirit, sportsmanship and character building.
Also, Pop Warner raffle tickets are available for an all-inclusive Hawaiian vacation. The grand prize package includes four round-trip airline tickets and a seven-day stay at one of Maui’s finest “on the beach” condos, donated by Cassidy Enterprises of Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. The second-place prize is a fishing trip on Lake Tahoe for six, donated by Mile High Fishing Charters of Lake Tahoe. Many more prizes offered by local merchants are being offered.
A donation of only $10 per ticket is required to enter the raffle, and you do not need to participate in the Pop Warner program to enter the drawing. All proceeds from the raffle will stay in our community to help the South Tahoe Pop Warner Association with the purchase of new equipment and offering scholarships for those families that may not be able to afford to have their children participate in the program.
The drawing will be held at the South Tahoe High School football homecoming game Oct. 4. You do not need to attend to qualify for the drawing or prizes. The South Tahoe High School football team and coaching staff has offered their assistance this year to assure a successful Pop Warner program and to help develop an athlete base for our high school teams in the future.
If you have any questions, would like to participate or would like to purchase a raffle ticket, contact Chuck Leonard, South Tahoe Pop Warner Association president, at (530) 542-3970 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
