Booster Club fundraiser Sept. 28

By Barbara Rowley

BIG SKY – The Lone Peak High and Ophir Middle School Booster Club is using big fun to raise big funds again this year with its second annual Carnival, hosting pre-game entertainment on Saturday, Sept. 28.

This year’s carnival will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the school courtyard (behind the buildings) before the first LPHS home football game. The fundraiser will offer more than 20 games and activity booths, as well as all the inflatable fun and carnival food you remember from last year (without the option of kissing the pig, whose owners are out of town). Cliff O’ Neidermeier will return to emcee the event and play dance music in his own inimitable style.

Plans also include the return of the Velcro wall and obstacle course, as well as the bounce house. New this year will be an inflatable jousting experience.

Virtually all sponsorship opportunities and volunteer booth operations filled immediately, however four sponsorship opportunities are still available for inflatables and for the Silly String and confetti egg booths.

“The great thing about the event was how much fun everyone had,” said co-chair Kathy Tatom about the 2012 carnival, which raised $5,000 for school athletics. Tatom is hoping to make at least $1,000 more this year. “The most important thing we need to reach our goal is a big turn out,” says Tatom. “So be sure and tell everyone you know.”
