Angelina Ortiz – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS Boys’ Basketball Team will be holding a Culver’s Night fundraiser 5-8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15 at the Culver’s location on State Rd 70 (5750 Ranch Lake Blvd) to help raise money for the team.
The team will receive 10% of the sales from the event. The varsity basketball players will be running orders to tables, cleaning, and helping with customer service.
While it will raise money for the team, this event is not just a fundraiser; students and their families can come out to Culver’s to show school spirit and support for the team.
According to head coach Jeremy Schiller, the funds will help cover expenses including hotels and buses for competitions, food for the players, and events like Senior Night.
The team hopes to bring 100 to 150 people to Culver’s. Team members are encouraged to bring in 2 to 3 families besides their own.
“We had a fundraiser like this one last year, but it wasn’t as successful as we would’ve liked because that same day there was a car accident that prevented a bunch of people from coming,” said Schiller.
