Online Auction

Now Seeking Baskets for Our Spring 2022 Online Auction

Planning is underway for our 4th Annual Mattawan Athletic Booster Online Auction, our largest fundraiser of the year! As I am sure you are aware, we ask every team to donate a basket to the auction. This is a requirement in order to qualify for MAB funding. We have been able to help many teams this year with uniforms, hotel stays, and equipment. If you haven’t reached out to us and your team has a need, please visit our website (mattawanathleticboosters.org) and find the donation request form!

Here are the details for the 2022 Auction:

  • The online auction will run March 6 – March 20, 2022.
  • We are asking for all donations to be submitted by Feb. 25, 2022 .
  • Teams have always done an awesome job creating high value, in demand baskets! The ski team takes the prize for earning the most money with the baskets they submitted last year – a South Haven getaway weekend and a “Winter Fun” Basket!
  • If you have any questions or need ideas for creative basket ideas, don’t hesitate to ask.
  • Some themes that have been popular: Date night packages (babysitter included), college and professional sports tickets, local restaurants, car service packages, beauty and spa services, chef dinners, and unique experiences (like a boat day, rental property getaway, etc.).
  • If you drop your basket(s) off to the athletic office, make sure we know what team it is from.
  • You can also coordinate with me for basket pick-up.

Thank you in advance for your support of MAB! We have more participation every year with this event and are hoping 2022 will be the best auction yet!

Concession Stand

Winter 2022-2023 Concession Stand Volunteers Needed

Concessions is one of our largest fundraisers and allows Mattawan Athletic Boosters to continue to provide our athletes with much needed resources for new uniforms, equipment, hotels stays, scholarships and more. This helps greatly to take some of the financial burden off of parents.

Each team (Freshman, JV & Varsity) is required to work shifts for each season (fall, winter, & spring) to be eligible for funding. This ensures a successful concession stand season and is a great opportunity to connect with parents and students with a common goal – providing resources for our student athletes. Thank you for doing your part and for being involved!

Our winter and spring concession sign ups will be out as those seasons approach. Thank you for your heart for service; your time is greatly appreciated and we could not do this without you!

Winter 2022-2023 Concessions Signup: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4eaea72caafc1-20221

We are seeking one more co-chair for the Concession Stand – does this sound like something that may interest you? Contact us for more information.

Concessions & Spirit Shop Volunteers

We need each team to have a volunteer to work the Concessions or Spirit Wear Shop during home games. Students and fans enjoy these amenities at games and they help raise funds for athletic programs.

  • We ask each team to have a volunteer work one slot in each of the three seasons.
  • If we don’t have volunteers for shifts then we cannot open these shops.
  • The stores are usually kept open for the first half of each game, then parents can enjoy the rest of the game.
  • A board member will be present to help get things opened up and provide some training.
  • The Winter and Spring signups will be sent out when those schedules are finalized. There will lots of volunteer slots available during the Basketball season!

The Fall 2021 Concessions & Spirit Shop Signup Genius is now open: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f44afa82ca13-fall 

Yard Sign Sales

Thank you to the coaches that sent out the information about the Mattawan Athletic Boosters Yard Sign Fundraiser! The sign orders are in process at the printer and we expect them to be in later this week. We will email you when the signs are in. They will be sorted and we will leave them in the athletic office for the coaches to pick up and pass out.

We will run this program again after tryouts in the Winter & Spring so athletes of all seasons can be celebrated.

Seelye PPP Car Program

The Seelye Auto Group is offering a program that benefits Mattawan families and the athletic boosters. Car buyers get discounted pricing and the Mattawan Athletic Boosters receive funding from this discount program.
