Fundraising Help Needed-Both Athletes and Adults:

We are pleased to be participating in the Panther Bagging Day at Shop Rite of Wall (Route 35) on Sunday, 2/22 from 9-5.
Panther athletes from all Boro sports are asked to help bag groceries for Shop Rite customers in return for donations for their help. Please discuss with your daughter or son about helping us. We are asking them to take only a two hour shift (9-11, 11-1, 1-3 & 3-5). This has the potential to be a huge fundraiser for us but we are depended on our athletes stepping up to the plate to take a shift. We are also in need of adults to supervisor a two hour shift. A letter has been sent to all coaches asking for their athletes to participate. Please consider helping with your child. Contact to let us know when you are available. Thank you in advance!

The Boosters is a volunteer organization that supports all athletic teams of the Point Pleasant Borough High School. We devote many hours of our time because we have a common and simple goal --to make a difference in our school and our community. 

One of our primary efforts to support student athletes is to provide scholarships to graduating seniors. Over the past 20 years, we have awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to our student athletes. The Boosters sponsor several fundraisers and events including Dodge Ball Tournaments, Fall, Winter, and Spring Sports Banquets, Super 50/50 Raffle and our largest event, our Annual Golf Tournament to be held in April/May as well as our memory stone paver project. 

Our membership dues are only $10 (document available for downloading below) for which your student becomes eligible to apply for a scholarship and your fee to attend varsity banquets is reduced (athletes attend for free). By volunteering at Booster events, you will enhance your child's chance to earn a financial scholarship. We ask you to help us continue our proud Panther traditions by accepting our invitation to join and serve our school community.
