What we do:
It's simple; the job of the KAB is to raise funds to be used to support East Kentwood Athletic programs at all levels. The Boosters accomplish this by managing operations of Concessions, Spirit Store and Athletic Programs and by hosting fundraising events. Each Booster participates in or runs a committee that is responsible for overseeing the operations of all Booster events and fundraising opportunities. Volunteers help accomplish committee goals.
Every summer the Boosters and administrators set goals for what they wish to accomplish in the upcoming year. It takes a tremendous amount of time and effort by the Boosters and volunteers to accomplish these goals.
The KAB raises funds by:
- Concessions Operations - KAB manages concessions operations at Falcon Stadium, Fieldhouse, Pat Patterson; Baseball/Softball Complex by utilizing parent volunteers to staff the concession areas during athletic events. Volunteers set up and run stands, grill/serve food, and clean up/close the stand at the end of the event. Volunteering to work concessions provides an excellent opportunity for our athletic teams and parents to get involved.
- Athletic Programs - Each year the Boosters oversee, produce and sell fall, winter and spring programs for EK athletics. You can contribute by becoming a Sponsor of EK Athletics by purchasing advertising space in the program for your business or Personal banner ad.
- Spirit Store - The boosters oversee the operations of the Spirit store. They order, maintain inventory, and man the Falcon Nest Spirit stores located at The High School and Falcon Stadium.
- Love A Falcon Night - The Love A Falcon Night is a yearly fundraising event. It is a night of gambling, dancing and eating all in good fun.
