Another bowl appearance? Yes, and you can help. The Arlington High School varsity cheerleaders are having a car wash Saturday, Aug. 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. near Mass. Ave. Costs are $5 for cars and $10 for trucks.
All proceeds go directly to the cheerleaders only. We are on a fund-raising marathon not only for the cost of practice, game and competition uniforms, gym, clinic and many other costs to cheer, but we also have been invited tol perform at this year's Holiday Bowl in San Diego.
The team will perform at the Holiday Bowl half-time show before an expected 60,000 fans and march in the parade. I'm told Mandy Moore (not sure who she is, but kids know) also will perform with the Team. So, that's about another $1400 per cheerleader of additional fundraising.
The AHS cheerleaders, in photo, participated in their first college football bowl game last New Year's Day, when they traveled to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl. The bowl parade was Friday, Dec. 31. See the Boston.com story here >>
