Springing into Success with Team Spirit: Cheerleading Fundraiser

As the season's cheers quieted down, the Giddings Cheerleading squad was nowhere near taking a break. Led by the dynamic Cote Schacherl, the team embarked on a robust off-season fundraising campaign, not only meeting but soaring past their initial goals. Their chosen battlefield? The aromatic and irresistible world of pretzels and waffles. This case study delves into their strategic execution using the Gold Athletics app and how they turned snacks into cheer gear, illustrating a perfect blend of planning and team spirit.

The Power of Digital Tools and Tempting Treats: Dynamic Fundraising

Starting on April 15th, the 11 dedicated cheerleaders from Giddings High utilized the Gold Athletics app for just a few weeks to spearhead their fundraising efforts. Their digital campaign was robust, sending out a whopping 701 emails that successfully engaged 110 supporters.

Impressively, the variety of pretzels and waffles sold contributed significantly to their fundraising efforts, each product adding a substantial chunk to the total raised.
