Funding Needed To Secure Water Polo Teams At Sonora High

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Will Sonora High School be adding Water Polo to its Sports program in the fall? The answer depends on funding.

Sonora Water Polo Club booster JulieAnn Personius says she is excited that the high school has granted them approval for the sport, but now $50,000 has to be raised to back it up.

The figure is based on the cost projections for two years, however Personius believes the funding for the two teams would be less.

A dinner fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday in the Manzanita room at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds and Personius hopes to raise between $10,000 and $15,000 to match the $12,000 already in the account.

She says they have applied for various community grants as well to help meet the goal by March. The dinner is catered by Camacho´s and will begin at 6:00pm. For more information contact JulieAnn Personius at 209-768-7024
