Last Wednesday, Jan 20th, over 245 guests gathered to honor Basketball Coach Shultz and the golden years team players from 65’-72’. The Beefsteak dinner, held at the Brownstone, was a success by all measures, especially when using the towers of leftover bread in which the beef is delivered on, as a barometer. With course after course guests indulged in not just the flavorful menu but also fellowship.
With a live auction including Yankees, Mets, Giants, Devils and Knicks tickets brought in nearly $4800 toward supporting the Athletic Department and contributed to the more than $10,000 raised throughout the evening. Donations doubled and ticket sales increased from last year continuing the positive growth trajectory Athletic Director, Barry Veenstra, emphasized during his department overview.
As one of the biggest Athletic Boosters of the year, the event supports our student athletes and the program, continuing to develop our competitive edge in our division. It is the program’s greatest hopes that our future athletes and their families will join us for Athletic Boosters going forward and see all that is being done to grow the program with the children enrolled from preschool through high school years.
Congratulations to all the coaches, players and supporters of EC Athletics!
