Hello friends. The Minatare Cheer Squad earned an amazing opportunity due to being awarded a Superior trophy at UCA Cheer camp. River, Jada, Yose, and Angelique have all earned the opportunity to perform at the 2024 Cheez-It Citrus Bowl Game in Orlando FL!! Included is the information in this post so you can see exactly how much money each girl needs to come up with and what the package includes. The trip is Dec 29-Jan 2nd and does not include airfare. However, it may be easier to pay for plane tickets out of pocket vs the package. Here's what is being asking. They need 200 total people (50 per cheerleader) to pledge/donate $20 each. IF I can achieve this, it will pay for almost the whole package for each girl. The girls will also do fundraising events to help, but this is the fastest and easiest way I as their coach can help. This is literally a once in a lifetime opportunity for these girls. You can see just how expensive Varsity has made this trip for the cheerleaders that earn it. For some families, it's not a big deal. But we know that most families do not have a spare $1000+ laying around. We want to help provide this awesome opportunity to represent MHS and Western Nebraska in front of 50,000+ spectators for the girls. If you can spare $20, please contact Darla Grumbles at email@example.com. The girls and Darla will be forever grateful. For all that sponsor, your name or business will be added onto a banner that we will display at the football field and gym.
