Booster Members -
We hope that you all had a great holiday and enjoyed the little “break” from the crazy soccer life! Now that Winter season is upon us, we have a great fundraising opportunity available to our Members. The Booster Club will be sponsoring:
HOLIDAY CASH RAFFLE
Prizes: 1st Prize - $250
2nd Prize - $150
3rd Prize - $100
Drawing will be held on January 5th at Southland Center (time TBD)
This raffle fundraiser is open to all current Booster Members. You will be selling raffle tickets for $10 and 100% of the proceeds will benefit your booster account. Example: If you sell 10 tickets you will receive $100 easy dollars into your account! This is a great opportunity for you to get a jumpstart on your fundraising for the upcoming season and tournaments. Remember the money you earn can be used towards any of your soccer financial needs (including cleats, uniforms, etc.).
We will be distributing 15 raffle tickets (more available upon request, no limits on how many you can sell!) to each Member on Saturday, December 8th at Southland Center. Please look for one of your Booster Board Members (Kristen Crowley, Marisa Williams, Cindi Krusza and Ashley Ursino) for your envelope.
PLEASE: We ask that if you DO NOT plan on selling any tickets, please respond to this e-mail to let us know. It will help us greatly with sorting the tickets and managing them.
If you have any questions, let us know.
Good luck and GO WINGS!
The Booster Club
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Booster Club's Fundraiser night at Potbelly on October 24th.
We were able to raise $150! These funds will be used to help the Booster Club host future events that will benefit all of its Members.
Stay tuned for details on upcoming cash raffle, bowling night and Wings family day all hosted by your Booster Club.
This summer in addition to our volunteer opportunities at Soldier Field, we also volunteered at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park from May to October. There was a total of 30 events at the Venue and the Booster Club was represented volunteering at 25 of the 30 events! That is awesome!
A HUGE thank you to all of the members who participated and made it a successful season. Some members who worked were able to profit up $1,500 for their accounts.
It was our first year at the venue so there were some learning curves all around but we believe by the end everything worked itself out and we will hopefully be even more profitable next season.
Be on the lookout around March for information to volunteer for next year's season!

The Midwest Wings Booster Club was established in 2012 and became non-for-profit in 2013 to help the Wings families with their soccer fees, tournaments, travel and soccer related expenses. The inspiration to establish the Booster Club came when the Wings decided to take 7 teams to the International Tournament at Disney the Summer of 2013.
If you would like a way to help offset some of your soccer costs, it is as easy as clicking the "Register" tab above. There is a $10 registration fee that you will have to pay each year you are a Member. You have a choice to pay online or to send a check offline to our Treasurer, Cindi Krusza (18503 Glen Oak Avenue, Lansing, IL 60438). Once you are a Member and begin raising funds in your account, you simply send Cindi an email asking for reimbursement of something you have paid for or she can pay the Club directly.
We love to hear suggestions and ideas that work for other organizations, or simply ideas that you may see or attend. Please let us know and help to make this Booster Club successful for everyone!
