Aliquippa Alumni Fundraising Banquet
Head Coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers helps Aliquippa with a debut kick off charity auction event, hosted by the Carl A. Aschman Extreme Makeover fundraising task force. Over 300 people are expected to attend the 1st Fundraiser Kick-off. The theme for the evening will be “Honoring our legacy, preserving our turf and building our future.” On May 20, 2017, in support of the fundraising task force, a dinner/banquet and silent sports memorabilia auction will provide funding to Aliquippa School District for renovation and new stadium fund. The dinner/banquet will be held at The Club at Shadow Lakes and we expect to gross over $10,000 and eventually will raise over $2,000,000,000 in the next 3 years. We are expecting funding support from ticket sales, sponsorships, donations and auction items, making this the most successful event ever in Aliquippa fundraising for the school. The guest speaker for the evening is Head Coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, focusing on our theme: “Honoring our legacy, preserving our turf and building our future.” Our event coordinator, Aileen Gilbert continues to express her excitement for this fundraiser that will greatly enhance the opportunities for our children. “If we thought we had champions in the past, in the present, with better facilities, we have yet to see our future.” For tickets, advertising, donations and sponsorship information, contact Aileen Gilbert at 724-630-6747 or Susan Capel 724-650-9082.
