  1. Dear Barb Booster Friend,

    The DeKalb Barb Boosters are excited to announce plans for our 2017 “Orange and Black Jackpot Bowling” Bash fundraiser. The evening will include Jackpot Bowling at Mardi Gras Lanes, 50/50 Lucky Strike, a Silent Auction, Pizza/Wings/Salsa & Chips, and Cash Bar with Guest Bartenders. The event will be a private party held on March 4th,beginning at 6:00 PM at Mardi Gras Lanes in DeKalb. We invite you to join us for the evening, as we celebrate DeKalb Barb Athletics and prepare for a successful 2017-2018 school year.

    In previous years the Booster Bash has been an extremely successful fundraiser, making it the most profitable fundraising effort, outside of the First National Challenge, for the DeKalb Barb Booster Club. The Booster Club’s goal is to continue to encourage fundraising for Barb Athletics and show pride in our athletes by expanding the funding to more than just the bare essentials. The First National Challenge has provided a terrific influx of revenue to both DeKalb and Sycamore Athletics; however, it is imperative that we look beyond the Challenge to keep pace with other athletic programs and to provide a successful experience for our student-athletes and our community.

    The Barb Boosters are committed to fostering the continued growth and success of DeKalb athletes and their teams. In addition to generating a major source of pride in the community for Barb athletics, the Boosters provide valuable financial assistance for both the high school and middle school sports programs. For example, over the last year the DeKalb Barb Boosters have provided the funds for DHS Boys Baseball uniforms, catching equipment, and batting helmets, Cheerleading Choreography and Music, Girls Soccer uniforms, Girls Softball pants, Boys Tennis warm-ups and scorecards, Boys and Girls Track uniforms, Volleyball uniforms for the entire 7th and 8th grades at CRMS, Boys Basketball uniforms at both HMS and CRMS, and Football jerseys for both HMS and CRMS. Yearly requests average $60,000 and these requests are just a fraction of all the needs facing DeKalb’s teams and facilities annually.

    We are hopeful that you can support this year’s event, “Orange and Black Jackpot Bowling” with a contribution of an item(s) to the silent auction or by a sponsorship at one of the levels listed on the attached page. Sponsorship and items for the auction will be included in a program prior to the event and listed on the Barb Booster webpage. We would like to receive all donated items by March 1st, to allow for printing time. Mardi Gras Lanes will also display a banner for each donor at the event.

    Please contact me at 815-762-0389 with any questions or email me at tddraper1@comcast.net.
