Westlake community event to kick off school year

The Westlake Demons Athletic Board (WDAB) will host its annual Spirit Rally and Membership Drive on Wednesday, Aug. 11. The purpose of the community event is to celebrate the start of the school year, introduce coaches and student-athletes and raise critical dollars to support the teams.

Sponsored by North Coast Jaw & Implant Center and held at the UH St. John Stadium at Westlake High School, the Spirit Rally will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. All community members are invited to attend. The event will feature the WHS cheerleaders and marching band, food trucks, games and activities.  

Virnette House-Browning, WDAB president, says it is a great way to bring the community together in a fun way, while encouraging people to become a  member of the athletic boosters.

“It’s a free event for the community and we usually get a great turnout. When people come and see all that WDAB is doing to support athletics in Westlake, they make the decision to become a member,” said House-Browning.

According to WDAB Vice President, Delicia Ostrowski, the Rally will not only offer an opportunity for individuals to sign up as members but community businesses can sign up to participate as a sponsor. "We have a number of sponsorships available for businesses that are great for connecting local people with local businesses," said Ostrowski. "Sponsorships range from $500-$2,000 and we'll have a sign up booth at the event where businesses can learn more." Ostrowski added that businesses who are not able to attend can also reach out at marketing@westlakeathleticboosters.org.
