The Slater Wildcat Booster held two fundraisers during the 2012 Homecoming weekend.
On Friday, Oct. 12, Elmer Hare Ford Sales and the Wildcat Boosters teamed up for the Drive One 4 UR School fundraiser. Approximately 250 people showed their support of the Slater High School athletes by driving a Ford car, truck or SUV and filling out a quick survey. Each driver amounted to a $20 donation from Ford Motor Company. Many of the Hare Ford employees donated their time to help raise money for the school. In addition, the student athletes' names were entered into a drawing for each person they had given a voucher to that came and drove a Ford. Caitlyn Clements won the drawing and won $100 for her efforts.
Saturday, Oct. 13, the boosters held the Second Annual 5K Run/Walk. Many participants braved the wet weather and finished the run/walk. Each pre-registered participant received a shirt and the reward of finishing the race.
The fundraisers raised approximately $5,000, which will be used to assist athletic teams that are on a rotation for new uniforms every four years.
