Booster Bash 2018

H.H. Dow High School and Midland High School Athletic Boosters have continued to join forces to raise funds for high school athletics.  Working together, along with our local community, the two athletic clubs help to support over 2,000 participating student athletes by spending, on average, over $100,000 annually.  This spending includes needs-based scholarships and funding for student athletes, uniforms, transportation assistance, equipment and supplies as well as educational resources and safety needs.

Please help us continue this tradition of support by attending our 7th Annual Booster Bash to be held on Saturday, March 17 at the Great Hall.  Our St. Patrick’s Day themed event will include casino games, DJ entertainment, raffles and special events, small plate buffet, open bar and desserts.  Tickets can be purchase for $60 at http://www.mpssportsboosters.com/.  Tickets purchased before February 10 will also include $10 in Booster Bucks to use for casino games.
