2014 Back the Wave

Back the Wave is successful

GREENVILLE – Greenville student athletes in conjunction with the Greenville Athletic Boosters, held its annual fundraising event, traditionally known as “Back the Wave” on Aug. 6.

The event kicked off with a large group photo of Greenville Student Athletes – thanks to Dick Brown for taking the photo.  Student Athletes went door to door meeting the community, handing out Green Wave Window Clings and a Greenville Sports Schedule.  Afterwards, the students reported back to the GHS Football Stadium to log their donations.  According to Stephanie Baumgardner, Athletic Boosters treasurer, over $4600 in donations were raised this year

A special thank you to Jim’s Drive-In for its annual donation of hot dogs and buns feeding the numerous students and volunteers. Thanks to the Greenville Cheerleaders for their donation of desserts and to the coaches and parents taking time to help coordinatethis event and chaperone athletes to their designated area of town. And finally, a big “Thank You” to the community for their continued support of athletes.

If you were missed during this community-wide event, but would still like to contribute, mail your $3 donation to Greenville Athletic Boosters c/o “Back the Wave” 100 Green Wave Way Greenville Ohio 45331. Provide a return address so a window decal and schedule can be mailed to your home.
