Why Support Boosters?
Why Support the Grimsley Athletic Boosters Club?
See this link for a brief youtube about GABC
GCS provides $17,500 to each Guilford County School for Athletic Programs. Annual cost for operation of athletics for Grimsley High Athletics averages $170,000.00.
Where do the remainder of the funds come from? Ticket sales from the fall football season and concessions make up a large amount of this deficit. The remainder falls on the responsibility of the Grimsley Athletics Booster Club.
The following are some of the operation costs that are included in the aforementioned $170,000.00:
$23,000- transportation costs for each semester for bussing athletes too/from games
$31-40,000- Campus field maintenance and up-keep
$3-4,000- field paint
$12,000- ticket takers
