The hard work put in by the athletes at Bertrand Community School reaped big benefits as they were able to meet their goal of $1000. “The kids really stepped up to organize and put together this fund raiser,” said Mark Dethlefs, one of the B-Club Sponsors. “They were able to round up some nice prizes for the raffle.” Local businesses offered gift certificates, Husker football and volleyball tickets, and a long board made out of the old wooden bleachers taken out of the west gym last summer.
Winners of the raffle were as follows:
$25 Gift Certificate to C-Plus – Paul Bachman
$25 Gift Certificate to Main Street Market – Sam Jensen
$50 Gift Certificate to Plum Pretty Boutique – Kim Ford
$50 Gift Certificate to Divine Boutique—Karma Hickey
$50 Gift Certificate to Blue Moose –Jennifer Sand
Husker Football Tickets – First National Bank of Bertrand—Nate Anders
Husker Volleyball Tickets from Betty Dahlgren – Brenda High
Long Board donated by Scott Schwarz – Paula Jacobs
The money raised will be donated to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund. The student athletes would like to thank all the local business for their donations and to all those that purchased raffle tickets for the benefit.
The fall sports season is off to a great start. Our athletes have shown many positive performances and have had a lot to be proud of so far this year. However, the fall has not been so kind to others around the United States. Hurricane season is in full swing and along with it has brought a lot of devastation to our country.
The athletes at Bertrand High School decided that they want to help those in need. “It really stinks…what they have to go through is really horrible,” said Grace Schwarz. Dylan Boggs added, “We hope that someone would try to help us out if we were in that situation.” We felt like we needed to come up with a plan to help.”
According to B-Club President Halle Dahlgren, the students had discussed doing a benefit prior to the “Hurricane Relief from the Heartland of Nebraska” project, but hadn’t had time to get things organized. The student-athletes did donate $500 to that community led benefit. But they wanted to do more. “The benefit was amazing, but because it was completed in such a short period of time, the we didn’t feel like they were able to help very much,” commented B-Club treasurer Kaitlyn Ryan.
In order to do their part to help the many victims of these massive storms, the student-athletes decided to host a raffle with the proceeds to be donated for this cause. Numerous items and certificates donated by local businesses and patrons will be raffled off. Prizes to be drawn after the football game ( homecoming week) on October 13th include:
$50 gift certificate for the Blue Moose
$50 gift certificate for Divine Boutique
$50 gift certificate for Plum Pretty Boutique
A long board made of lumber from the old bleachers from the west gym donated by Scott Schwarz
$25 gift certificate from Countryside Market
$20 gift certificate from C-Plus
2 Husker Volleyball tickets for Nov. 20 donated by Betty Dahlgren
2 Husker Football tickets donated by First State Bank of Bertrand
According to Atlee High, all proceeds will be donated through the American Red Cross. Anyone that wants to give to this cause can contact an Executive Council “B”-Club member or sponsors (Lisa Mason, Mark Dethlefs, or Bruce Chesterman). In addition, tickets were sold at the Bertrand Invitational Volleyball Tournament, and will be on sale at the football game on Oct. 13 prior to the drawing. Raffle tickets are 1 ticket per dollar, 6 tickets for $5, or 20 tickets for $15.
“It’s nice to be a part of a community that wants to support others in our country,” said Kassidy Drain and Lindsay Schutz. “We just want to help make a difference.”
