Boys Town Boosters Host Tailgate, Present Check for Sports Programs


​On Friday, Aug. 31, Boys Town Boosters hosted a tailgate meal at the first home football game of the Cowboys' season and presented a check benefiting the Boys Town sports program at halftime.

The Boys Town Sports Booster Members served hamburgers and hotdogs at the game against West Point-Beemer. It is these members who are critical to the success of Boys Town's athletic department.  

Because of the work the Booster Members do throughout the year, by securing sponsors, selling tables and donating fundraiser items, we are able to support our youth's sports programs on campus. Not only do these funds benefit Boys Town athletes but also all the children who use the track, gym and weight room during the school year.

A check of over $145,000 was presented at halftime from the funds that were raised at this year's Booster Banquet in May.

"The tailgate has become a tradition for many Boosters and their families. They love bringing their spouses and kids to serve food and drink, and watch a little football."

Big thank you to the Booster members who work year round to provide the best sports programs and facilities to Boys Town youth.
