The DeForest Area Lions’ Club has partnered with DeForest Area School District to hold an athletic facility raffle. The first and second prizes are 2 tickets to the December 25 Packers vs. Bears game at Lambeau Field, donated by First Student Inc. Third prize is 18 holes of golf for 4 with carts, donated by Lake Windsor golf course. Fourth prize is a DASD family athletic pass for 2012-2013. Fifth prize is a $50 chamber certificate, and sixth prize is a press box tour and seats at the 50 yard line for the first home game of 2012.
Raffle tickets are $10 each and can be purchased from a member of the Lions’ Club of DeForest, at the DAHS Athletic office or the DASD Administrative Center. The drawing will be held on November 18 at the high school athletic office.
Funds raised through the raffle will support the high school athletic facility project. Currently the project plan calls for improvements to the home side bleachers at Stalder Field in order to bring the district into compliance with current safety codes and increase seating capacity. The fund raising campaign will allow for additional enhancements including a tennis storage building, additional parking, restroom expansion, and accessibility improvements.
