Ice and water should be dropped off at the cheer garage door on the day of the game at the time cheerleaders report for duty.  Each case of water should be at least twenty-four, 16oz bottles.  Bags of ice should be 20lb bags.  If you would like to donate, please choose a signup slot by clicking on the following link:

Bake Sale Table Goodies & Volunteers Needed!

One of our fundraisers every year is the Bake Sale Table at Home varsity football games. There are two ways that we need your help to make this a success:


Varsity cheer parents are asked to provide baked goods at every game – The more we have to sell the more the team makes.  You don’t need to be an expert baker – store bought is okay as well – but the fresh goods always go first!  Please have your donated items to the Cheer garage by 5pm on game days (send with your cheerleader). If you get there after 5pm, please bring directly to the table – we set up on the home side of the field by the bleachers. Please make sure all items are packaged individually and no products with nuts can be sold.

Chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, pretzels with Hershey’s kisses and M & M things, brownies, Rice Krispie treats, donuts, whoopie pies, Little Debbie snack cakes have all been great sellers in the past, but anything nut free is welcome.  Our customers love the variety we provide!  Baked goods will be sold for $.75 each so please package accordingly.  Most people package 1 cupcake or brownie, 2 cookies, etc.  If not obvious, please label your baked goods with a slip of paper in the bag letting us know what it is.  In the dark it’s often hard to tell and people often ask.


There are only four (4) home football games this year, so we should have plenty of help for the Bake Sale Table.  We split the night into two shifts of two people: First Shift – 6-8pm, and Second Shift – 8-10pm.  Therefore, we a need a total of four people per home game to staff the bake sale table.

Kindly volunteer for a shift using this link:

We are not working football concessions again this year, so having the Bake Sale Table fully stocked with yummy treats and selling them is especially important once more!  Last year, we raised almost $1,200, one cupcake at a time.  Please contact our Bake Sale Table coordinator, Jamie Zuvich (, with any questions.  Thank you in advance for your goodies and your efforts!

Football Frenzy Fundraiser Underway Thru Oct 12

We are again joining forces with CD East & CDYCA to sell Football Frenzy Tickets, a fundraiser we did last year with good success.  It is our hope that this fundraiser will continue to help plug the revenue hole from not having to work football concessions.


It is a contest based on the scores of NFL football teams each week.  We sell a ticket for $10.  The ticket is good for each of the last 10 weeks of the NFL football season, beginning Oct 26th.  Three NFL teams are listed below each week on the ticket.  Each week, you add up the final score of each of the teams for that week.  The top three totals win $100, $30, and $20, respectively.  So players are essentially paying $1 a week for the chance to win up to $100 each week.  Winners are chosen from only the pool of tickets that the cheer teams sell.


Cheerleaders (and/or dads) sell tickets and return money and ticket stub to CDHS cheer mailbox – that’s it!  Each ticket sold earns the Club about $6-7 depending on how many we sell.  All other aspects of the program are administered by the fundraising company, including winner notification and payout.

We have from now until Oct 12th to sell the tickets and the first week of the contest is Oct 26th.  We are asking each cheerleader to try to sell five (5) tickets.  Call/text/email Doug at any time (717.648.1562, if you need additional tickets.

This fundraiser is voluntary and intended for all in order to replace our lost concession revenue.  Take ‘em if you can help – and we hope you do, since we don’t have the concession obligation again this year.

Ticket stubs and cash must be returned to the CDHS cheer mailbox by Thursday, October 12th.
