The Ellicottville Sports Boosters met and, with the construction of the new gym and parts of the school, fundraising during sporting events is going to be a challenge, so the group is looking for new ways to raise funds. Here are some of the events they have planned:

Annual Golf Tournament – This event will hopefully take place in early July at Holiday Valley.

First Annual Adult Party on July 26 –  The party will have a DJ or live music and will be held at the Great Valley Fireman’s Clubhouse. There will be a gun raffle, basket raffle and 50/50 drawings all night. This will be the first annual event and is being headed by Shana Chudy and Todd Palmatier. The Sports Boosters are looking for donations for the raffles. The gun raffle tickets will be $10 each and will start with hopefully five guns. As tickets are sold, we hope to add more guns to the event.

Gym Floor Auction – The Sports Booster will also be selling and auctioning the ECS gymnasium floor after graduation.  What better way to remember your days at ECS than owning a piece of the ECS floor. Sizes and special parts of the floor are still being discussed and more details will be posted soon.

The Spring Sports Banquet is planned for June 9 at ECS.

The next meeting is in May 19, and we encourage everyone to come out and join the Sports Boosters.
