Pittsboro, NC - The Northwood High School Athletic Booster Club is excited about the 2010-2011 school year and anticipate another successful year for all of our players and teams.

It has already been a busy summer for our school. The fall sports have been practicing hard and some will start playing games this week. If you have been on campus recently, you may have noticed significant work being done on the Soccer field. The Booster Club has been successful in securing funding to correct some major drainage issues, and expand the playing surface to a regulation size field. We will then begin working on securing grant money to add lights, bleachers and restrooms so we can hold games and the field can become a facility our kids can be proud of.


To continue to build all of our programs and facilities we need your help. Our biggest fund raiser of the year is already under way. This year we will be conducting a raffle with prizes of $5,000 / $500 / $250 / $100 in cash. This is not a reverse raffle and there is no dinner like last year.

We need help with two items:

1. Folks that can help sell tickets. They come in books of 10 with great selling points......(cash prizes, door prizes, tax deductible, only 400 to be sold)

2. About 5 volunteers to form a Raffle Committee (Arrange door prizes and coordinate logistics of the actual drawing)

Please let me know if you can help with either of these items.


Throughout the year we will send out requests for help with concessions at certain events. Concessions is one of our primary fundraisers and also is a good way to get to know other members of the club. Please consider helping out when you can.

General Meeting

There will be a general membership meeting on September 13 at 6:30pm in the Northwood Media Center. The Booster Club leadership team will lay out our goals for the year and review general club business. Matters involving club business will be voted on. If you are a current member of the Booster Club, you have the right to vote on these matters.

  • Lex Alvord - Vice President
