SEATTLE THUNDERBIRDS - Over $13,000 Raised For Kent School District Athletes and Athletics by T-Birds and T-Birds Foundation
 

Inaugural Support A Sport event a success

KENT, November 26, 2012 — The Thunderbirds Community Sports Foundation and the Seattle Thunderbirds raised $13,752 for Kent School District athletes and athletics through the inaugural Support A Sport Event.

“We are excited about the funds raised for local athletes and athletics as well as the start of the Support A Sport Program,” said Foundation board member Brenda Farwell. “We look forward to next year and working with the schools in the Kent School District to expand this program.”

The Support A Sport event is a fundraising opportunity for the Kent School District. Students, teachers, staff, parents and friends of Kent High Schools and Middle Schools purchased Seattle Thunderbirds tickets to the game on Wednesday, November 21, against the Kootenay Ice to earn funding for the school of their choice.

The full purchase price of a $24 T-Birds ticket was donated to the Kent school of the purchaser’s choice.  $12 per ticket was donated by the Seattle Thunderbirds and $12 was matched by the Thunderbird Community Sports Foundation. The unique part of this fundraising opportunity is the matching donation given by the Foundation.

The Thunderbird Community Sports Foundation promotes good health, physical education, and academic achievement by providing scholarships and grants for amateur athletes in the Puget Sound Region. The funding allows athletes to participate in athletic competitions in team and individual sports, as well as providing grants to local youth and amateur sports associations for equipment and facilities for use in our community.

The Foundation has awarded $145,518 to athletic groups since its inception in 2009.
