Mariners cheer supporters

On behalf of the Mariner Girls and Boys Basketball Team, I would like to thank the community, friends and co-workers for their continued enthusiastic support of the Homer High School basketball program. As you can imagine, it is very difficult to ask people to buy pricey raffle tickets. We always understand “no,” and we always appreciate “yes.”

With your support the boys program raised more than $4,400, and the girls program raised about $2,500. This money is used for traveling to regular conference games and extra play around the state so the players can improve their game. The parents and players are required to fundraise for all travel, for uniforms and for a place to sleep.  Our boys have slept on the floor of schools throughout their season to save money, so it is well spent.

The raffle drawing was held Feb. 11 with the following results:

The grand prize was a day at the Second Star Event Venue worth $2,000, donated by Gene and Andrea Anaya. The winner was Julie McCarron; the ticket was sold by the Daugharty family.

The first place prize was 25,000 Alaska Air miles donated by Donna Fenske and won by Ruth Dickerson; the ticket was sold by the Beachy family.

The second place prize was a halibut charter for two donated by Captain Dave Cloud of Time Out Charters. It was won by Carrie Baker; the ticket was sold by the Brown family.

The third place prize was $100 cash, donated by the program, and won by Bette Seaman; the ticket was sold by the Daugharty family.

A special thanks to those who donated the prizes. We couldn’t have had a raffle without such great and fun prizes to sell.

Our final home game was Monday, Feb. 24.  It was a celebration night for the seniors on the boys and girls teams, as well as the senior cheerleaders. Friday, Feb. 28, we play at Skyview and Saturday, March 1, we head to Seward. 

 Finally, again, thank you so much for supporting these teams. It is so much appreciated.
