Description

Penguins Swim & Dive Team Families-

The Penguins Palooza is an annual fundraiser for the Swim and Dive Team, chaired by Boosters members David and Kelly Russell.  The Swim Palooza will be held at the pool on June 25th from 8-10 am.    

WHAT IS THE PENGUINS PALOOZA? 

  • Our annual FUN-draiser – PENGUIN PALOOZA 
  •          Donations will be used for Team expenses, including scholarships, expanded coaching staff and needed equipment
  •          Each athlete (swimmer or diver) is requested to obtain at least $50 in sponsorship and participate in the Palooza in support of the Team.
  •          Sponsors can be anyone – parents, neighbors, relatives and friends.
  •          The goal is to see how many dives or lengths of the pool an athlete can complete (Length of pool = 25 meters end to end)
  •          Each donor/sponsor has the choice to sponsor the athlete 1.) by the length of pool (maximum of 50 lengths) or by dive, OR 2.) the whole performance.
    •    Examples:
      •   Grandma sponsors Johnny for 10 cents per dive. Johnny does 50 dives.  
      •   Grandma gives Johnny a check or cash that totals $5 (50 dives x $.10/length)
    •    By Performance
      •   Grandpa tells Johnny that he will donate $20 to the team upon completion of the Penguin Palooza no matter how many dives or lengths Johnny swims.
  •         Donations can be made by check or to the team VENMO account - @newportpenguins  

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT THE PALOOZA?

  •          Breakfast is being provided by the team.
