Right now, Westlake Demons Athletic Boosters (WDAB) has a rare opportunity to further improve our athletic program through an anonymous donation to be used for a COMPLETE UPGRADE of the WHS WEIGHT ROOM. You have already been an important part of the success WDAB has had in supporting our student athletes. Your support has allowed us to raise unprecedented funds the past two years and these funds have been invested right back into our athletic programs benefiting our athletes. However, WDAB again needs your generous support to make the weight room upgrade a reality!
The anonymous donor is willing to fund up to $40,000 of the upgrade costs if WDAB is able to cover the remaining $40,000 estimated cost of the project. In September 2013, the new Westlake High School opened with the latest upgrades in technology, equipment, and design necessary to “Educate for Excellence” in an increasingly competitive academic world. At the same time, the high school weight room opened with outdated, mismatched equipment in disrepair. There are educational benefits associated with students participating and competing on athletic teams. High school athletic teams teach our young adults life-long lessons about teamwork, development, maturity, and most importantly, how to win and lose with class. WDAB believes in the significance of learning these lessons. All athletic teams and physical education classes use our weight room.
Therefore, an upgraded weight room is needed to help increase our team competitiveness and further develop strength and conditioning. An upgraded weight room is also needed because of the advancements and improvements in the technology and design of strength and conditioning equipment. Examples of upgraded weight rooms with designs and equipment to be featured in upgraded WHS Weight Room. As previously stated, the current weight room has outdated equipment in disrepair. Lastly, we need this upgrade because we cannot miss taking advantage of a generous 50% matching donation.
I am asking that you please support this unique opportunity for our Athletic Program with a financial donation. WDAB is establishing a weight room campaign running through February 29, 2016. We need to raise $40,000. Take advantage of tax benefitis by donating TODAY! 300 Donors @ $133 each and we will do this! Any donation is appreciated and all donors will be recognized (if you want)!
There are three ways you can donate:
> Mail a check to WDAB, PO Box 45236, Westlake, Ohio 44145 and write WEIGHT ROOM in the memo line.
> Donate here via this CrowdRise account established for this exciting campaign.
If you are interested in “naming rights” to the weight room, please contact us to discuss this opportunity.
THANK YOU for partnering with WDAB and supporting Demon Athletics. It is because of you that we have been successful in implementing our ALL ATHLETICS/ONE GOAL approach and it is because of you that we will have a successful Weight Room Campaign.
Go Westlake, Demon Pride!
