Dear HHS Parents:

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We hope you will consider joining the Homestead High School Athletic Booster Club – an all-volunteer organization made up of HHS parents and administrators. We would appreciate your support as budget constraints continue to affect all departments throughout our school district, including the Homestead Athletic Department.

The Homestead Athletic Department and all teams representing HHS operate on a budget supported solely with money raised by ticket/gate receipts and funds raised by the Athletic Booster Club – the only sanctioned fundraising group for Homestead athletics. Not only do we give a cash donation every year to the athletic department, but we also directly pay for trophies, certificates, letters, chevrons, ribbons, banners, yard signs, sports programs, and many other miscellaneous items. We are very proud of our student-athletes participating on our 46 IHSAA sanctioned sports teams and are pleased to contribute to their athletic and academic success.

Your Athletic Booster Club contributes to the support of the Athletic Department and success of all teams representing Homestead High School by means of:

1. General Membership – ALL athletes benefit when they participate on a sports team at Homestead – conversely, we need ALL parents to help support our organization. We encourage you to consider joining the Athletic Booster Club to show support not only for your sons and daughters, but all sports teams representing Homestead High School.

2. Sports Program – Fall, Winter and Spring sports programs are published to promote our teams and student-athletes. We have one of the finest sports programs in all of Indiana. To purchase an ad please contact Chad Zolman at, or by calling (260) 615-1964.

3. Gold Card – This annual Athletic Department fall fundraiser offers for sale the Gold Card, a class product offering great discounts to retail establishments in our area. Last year this card netted over $70,000 for our sports teams! Support our athletes when they come to your door selling this card.

4. Mike’s Carwash – This winter Athletic Department fundraiser features car wash coupons from Mike’s Carwash, with convenient locations throughout Fort Wayne. We are pleased to report last winter this fundraiser netted nearly $16,000 for the Athletic Department.

5. Tumbler Fundraiser –
This fundraiser features Tervis-type tumblers, adorned with the colors and logos for many popular Collegiate and Professional sports teams both regionally and nationally, as well as a customized HHS Spartans tumbler. This spring fundraiser was again a huge success last year, netting $18,000 for the Athletic Department and all sports teams representing Homestead High School.

WE NEED YOU to help make all this happen – through your tax-deductible contribution as well as your involvement with our organization. Become involved by joining our membership, advertising in our program books, supporting our seasonal fundraisers, or by volunteering! If you would like to get involved you may do so by contacting any Athletic Booster Club board member; or speak with our Athletic Director, Joe Updegrove.
