Letter from Varsity Softball Coach Allison Mendibles:
Dear Prescott Unified School District Families,
I am writing to you on behalf of the Prescott High School Softball Program. It is with great excitement to tell you that we have been given the lower baseball field on the Prescott High School campus to make a home of our own for the 2013 season and for all seasons to come.
Our dream of a new field has come true, but with this dream there is a reality. Building this softball complex will not be an easy task. In order to make this dream come true we are asking for support from the PUSD community. We are looking for support of any kind—financial support, material donations (lumber, irrigation supplies, dugout block, fencing, landscaping), items for raffles, and of course volunteers. To make this a fully functioning field we need to replace the back-stop, raise and add dirt to the infield, add grass to the outfield, add irrigation, build dugouts, purchase of an outfield fence, and remodel the press box. Estimated cost to complete this dream is between $30,000.00 – $40,000.00.
Our booster club has already hit the street running to help raise funds for this lofty project. The booster club is planning several fundraising events throughout the next few months starting with our ground breaking celebration on August 25th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the new field on the Prescott High School campus. In addition to the ground breaking, we will be raising funds through cookie dough sales, 2nd Annual PHS Softball Golf Tournament (October 20th), car washes, banner sales, “buy a brick” for the Badger walkway, sale of Lady Badger apparel, and yard sales. I have attached information regarding a few of these fundraising events.
Although the softball program has taken on this project with great excitement, we feel to successfully achieve our goal the Prescott High School Softball program needs community support and involvement. If there is anything you can do to help us with our “Field of Dreams,” please let me know. You can email my booster club at email@example.com or phone Kathy Janosko at 928-499-1344 or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 928-713-0502.
Thank you so much on behalf of the Prescott High School present and future players!
Varsity Softball Coach
