To the Editor:
The Fairmont Cardinal Athletic Booster Club would like to extend sincere thanks to the Martin County Area Foundation for the grant we received for our organization. The grant funded the purchase of a higher capacity hot dog cooker to be used in our concession stands.
Funds raised by the Athletic Booster Club go to support Fairmont Cardinal varsity sports. One of the main revenue sources of the club is operating the concession stands for Cardinal athletic events. We purchase our own equipment and maintain or replace items as they wear out. Net proceeds from our club go to help all Cardinal sports program purchase items that the school cannot provide as well as fund. Therefore, we are thankful when we can partner with others to purchase equipment to support our efforts.
Please go to the Martin County Area Foundation website at www.mcareafoundation.org to see who the board members are so you can thank them for their contribution to the Fairmont Cardinal Athletic Booster Club. Also, check out all the organizations they support.
Rhonda Hines, president
