Most of the cheer squad showed up to help out with the bake sale to raise the money for new uniforms for the new cheerleaders. The uniforms include an under layer of a spandex long-sleeve top and spanks, the skirt, and Shamrock top. These uniforms usually run around $300, and that’s not including shoes, jackets, bows, and sweatpants. In the past years, cheerleaders have even worked so many fundraising events that they had extra money left over to buy new shoes the next year!
Goodies ranged from homemade cupcakes, cake pops, and entire cakes! An actual amount of money earned has not been calculated yet, but we will hear about the figures as soon as they're calculated.
Along with the excitement of the fundraiser, the girls are also excited for the start of this season and what it will hold.
Jenny Gallardo commented, “It’s a great way to bond with the girls on the squad! It’s a fun way to get to know each other and have a good time doing it!”
Emily Lewis commented, “The bake sale turned out to be a huge success! We sold everything but a couple cookies!”
The next cheerleading fundraiser will be held November 1st in Downtown New Haven. -by Karissa Durbin
