Parents, staff, administrators and community members came together on March 6 at the Shoreline Center for the annual Shorewood Booster Dinner Auction, raising $80,000 to support clubs, sports and activities at Shorewood High School. This year’s theme was a 50’s inspired Jukebox Saturday Night and guests could be seen in poodle skirts, leather jackets, and all things ‘Happy Days’ inbetween. A sold out event by mid February, the evening included great music, 272 guests, over 75 students and staff assisting with the real time details of the night, and Shorewood’s Culinary Arts Department’s diner inspired menu of bite size hamburgers and mini grilled cheese starters, Oven Fried Chicken, Whipped White Cheddar potatoes and “Coffee and Doughnuts” to finish.

This years Fund-A-Need “raise your paddle” moment benefited the Shorewood Weight Room where the plan is to create a gathering space for all students to develop a life-long love of personal fitness, attain their potential in athletic preparation, or just have a great place to burn energy with team mates and classmates in an organized, supervised, healthy environment. With a lead-in video produced by Lip Dub sensation Javier Caceres, and cheering students and staff on stage, paddles were raised for a total of over $10,000 in support of this project.

An evening of fun, socializing and wonderfully spirited moments culminated in the live auction as bidders bought trips, dinners, jewelry, and experiences all in the name of fundraising to support Shorewood.

We believe that students work harder and learn better when given a chance to connect to school through their own set of interests. Shorewood Boosters would like to thank all of our guests, volunteers, local merchants, area businesses and those individuals who continue to partner with us in our 35 year mission of providing spirit, pride and support to Shorewood High School.

Together we create opportunities for our kids to shine.
