Exciting opportunity for All harbor alumni!
LIGHT UP HARBOR HIGH
TO ALL HARBOR HIGH ALUMNI from Fred Heitz
An opportunity exists to turn the lights on at Harbor High School!
We’ll have field lights for night football games and for night soccer
after the sun goes down games and for night lacrosse games!
These lights will enable:
- The development of a boys’ and a girls’ soccer team to practice and play
- A boy’s lacrosse team that can practice more often
- More practice time for multiple teams (JV and Varsity levels – boys and girls)
- Enjoy the excitement of Friday night sports
- More parents – and alumni – watch our students play sports during n1on-working hours
- And by design, we’ll have greater school spirit and Harbor High pride
Your help is needed!
It will cost $265,000 to cover the costs of permitting, preparing
the field, and purchasing four 70-80 feet metal halide lamps between
the 10 and 15 yard lines. We have firm commitments from an HH parent,
a contractor, who has lined up the necessary people to dig the holes
and install the poles. We have an electrician (perhaps more than one)
ready to provide lines and power. So ....... we actually only need to raise $100,000!!!!!!
the school district has committed to matching all dollar and in-kind
donations made. We currently have about $13,000 (including the match).
We NEED every alumnus to contribute!
Please review your 2014 charity budget and find some funds to put
towards this worthy project. No amount is too little – and of course,
no amount is too much.
Our Athletic Director, Steve
Kopald’s dream is to have the lights installed before the first
football game this fall: September 6th. We can do it – it’ll take
about a month (to six weeks max) to have the lights ordered and
installed. But we need to have raised all the money by that date. So,
Send your check made payable to Harbor High
Athletic Department and note “field lights” in the comment/memo
line. Send this to: Steve Kopald, Athletic Director, Harbor High
School, 300 LaFonda Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95062.
Thank you for your kind and generous response to this effort!
