FundrAisers

Fundraising

The Westbrook Athletic Boosters promotes various types of fundraisers in an effort to help support the student-athletes of Westbrook. We are always looking for ideas (no matter how crazy they may seem) to raise funds. Please feel free to send some ideas through our FEEDBACK FORM.

Fundraisers since 2020

Freezin for the Season plunge into the sound - Fundraiser to have individuals and families take a bitter plunge into the waters of Long Island Sound. The plunge will take place at the end of the event (Approx. 2:00 PM) but the hope is for families to come down, get some food from the "Chow Food & Beverage " food truck, get FREE hot chocolate from "Essex Chocolates" or a FREE coffee from "Julies Cup of Joe". We hope for the cold but want people to know we will have a warming station (heated tent thanks to Quality Propane), changing tents, a fire on the beach, Cornhole and some Beach Jai Lai (weather permitting on games). We have also had an amazing commitment from the town of Westbrook and our emergency services. As an example, the fire department will have divers in the water to oversee the divers that day. Let's make this a yearly TOWN event to remember while supporting our student athletes and some local businesses. The date is Sunday February 6, 2022 from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM at the Westbrook Town Beach - Set for Sunday Frebruary 6, 2022

Online Apparel - We launched a 24x7x365 Online store in October 2020 through BSN Sports. We had looked at different options for storefronts and landed on this company. This store offers a wide variety of clothing and other items that are associated with the Westbrook Knights. This site also offers many "Flash" sales with huge discounts. Come check it out, especially if looking for some amazing Westbrook Knights items! - Open

Basketball Foul shot challenge - This has been done in the past and proven a fun and simple way to raise money for specific areas. Each basketball team member takes 100 foul-shots and coaches record how many are made. Each player is responsible to raise pledges (by shot or flat amount) as coaches set prizes for certain goals. This is a fun thing for the athletes to do and it also makes them practice their foul-shots in preparation of the contest - Planning for 2021/2022 season

Car Wash

Fall 2021 - Car wash was a huge success on Sunday October 3rd, 2021 at the Westbrook Town Hall. The Westbrook Athletic Boosters would like to thank everyone who came out to support our student-athletes at out 1st car wash held on Sunday. The fundraiser was a huge success but could not have been done without help from our student-athletes and some parents who helped throughout the day. Additional thanks go to Caitlin Eichler (Westbrook High School -Dean of Students Activities and Athletics) for contacting coaches and lining up all the student-athletes to work or make signs and the town of Westbrook (Rich Annino – Director of Athletics and Noel Bishop – First Selectman) for allowing us to use their facilities.

I think the best part of the fundraiser was seeing how much fun the kids had. It was supposed to be shifts (by sport) but ended up with kids just staying through. At some points we didn’t have enough signs, sponges or drying rags to support the amount of kids. At the end, the kids were all asking when we can do this again. Based on that, we have decided to try to do a Spring and Fall car wash going forward.

Thank you ALL for making this fundraiser a great success!

Mask Up For the Knights - This was a sale of multiple styles and sizes of protective masks with the Westbrook Knights logos. This fundraiser ended up requiring two individual campaigns due to the positive response from the town. - Closed

Pie Sale - This was a sale of pies around Thanksgiving time. Pies were supplied at a discounted price by a Booster member who worked for a local distributor. This sale was a "quick" sale as the ordering, delivering and delivery all occurred within a 2 week timeframe of the fundraising idea. This was great "team" effort and needless to say, a successful fundraiser - Closed

Knights Driveway painting - Launched in late Fall of 2020, the boosters created a template of the "W" for Westbrook that could be used to paint a couple designs on flat surfaces (primarily aimed at driveways). Although the idea was for driveways, the word got out and we ended up having a couple basketball courts requesting it. We are even working with the Daisy Elementary, Westbrook Middle and Westbrook High schools to donate one at each location. We were able to get a few in before the weather go too cold but we are open again for the warmer seasons now. If interested, please click on the Driveway Form and let us know which design and when a good time to meet would be to discuss exact location. - Closed

Pride Slides - Launched in March of 2021, another quick fundraiser open for 2 weeks ran to sell Westbrook Knights slides. The sales were low but we believe it was due to the communication in the end. The possibility of having another campaign is possible as the club evaluates a better communication plan. Second fundraiser launched on October 27, 2021 adding Black as a color option.- Closed
